October is National Dental Hygiene month!

October is National Dental Hygiene month (founded in 2009). This month is dedicated to promoting good oral health habits and recognizing all of the hard work Hygienists do.  We are honoring our Dental "Hygiene Queens," Kathy and Jenn!! 

They are dedicated professionals and we are so lucky to have them!  Their patients leave our office with squeaky clean teeth and a fresh mouth during regular check-ups.  Our Hygienists go above and beyond a routine cleaning.  They check for oral cancer (using a Velscope), for the start of forming cavities and provide the utmost comfort to our patients while doing it. 

Thank you both so much for all of your hard work to keep our teeth & gums so clean and healthy! You both play an important role in improving, not just our oral health, but our overall health during check ups.

Some of the ways you can observe National Dental Hygiene month is by flossing every day (especially before bed), brushing twice a day for at least two minutes and rinsing with an anti-cavity rinse in the morning and evening.
