OK, so we’re about a month late with this one — National Dental Hygiene Month was actually observed last month in October, however — we say every month should celebrate this invaluable part of your dental care. Join your Georgetown dentist in talking about why dental hygiene and Dental Hygiene Month are important and what they mean for you and us.
A Healthy Smile Reminder
Keeping dental hygiene at the front instead of the back of your mind helps us all to remember to take care of our teeth every single day. No one wants a dirty mouth, so it’s important to always stick to your oral health routine which should include brushing twice a day and flossing once. Most importantly — Don’t miss out or forget to schedule your checkup and cleaning with your Georgetown dentist and dental hygienist!
A Special Dental Hygiene Honor
Our Georgetown dental office would not be the same without our amazing dental hygiene team. They’re talent and compassion for patients is what keeps patients and families coming back to us year after year as their forever dental home. According to the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, there are more than 150,000 (and growing) registered dental hygiene professionals in the United States. About 98 percent of them are female. We honor and recognize them all for providing our patients education and extra special care.
An Excuse to Treat Yourself
Maybe you can make it a time to check what tools you’re using at home to take care of your smile. Do they need an upgrade? Do you have questions for your dentist in Georgetown about what you should be doing or using at home? Take an inventory and see what you could do to improve your dental hygiene routine at home to make life a little easier (something we could all always use).
Are you due for a dental cleaning? Call our Georgetown dental office today to get scheduled for some time with your favorite dental hygienist. Be sure to let them know how much you appreciate their help and encourage them to keep doing what they love. If you have any questions, never hesitate to ask them or us!
