It’s National Dental Hygiene Month!
October is National Dental Hygiene Month! Organized by the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) in collaboration with Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, manufacturer of Orbit gum, National Dental Hygiene Month focuses on healthy habits for a healthy smile. Visiting your family dentist should be part of your regular health check-up but as we celebrate National Dental Hygiene Month, the ADHA encourages people to develop and continue with a daily oral health routine, which should include brushing 2minutes 2x a day, flossing daily, rinsing with mouthwash and chewing sugar-free gum after eating.
