You may wonder why we offer you a toothbrush and floss at every dental hygiene visit. Sometimes we get the question: “Isn’t it a waste of money?” Our answer is always “no,” and here are five reasons why.
- Human nature
Dental folks in-the-know recommend changing your toothbrush every three months. Not many people do that. So by giving you a toothbrush at your six month visit, we can be reasonably sure you change it every six months at least.
- It’s a teaching opportunity
Michelle, Brea and Denise will take any opportunity to make you a better brusher. Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums. Gently make tiny circles on all tooth surfaces. Harder is not better! Two minutes twice a day.
- You need a new grout scrubber
The bristles on your current grout scrubber look like Albert Einstein’s hairdo.
- So you have our emergency phone number
Let’s say you’re in Tanzania with no cell phone and a tooth breaks. All you need to do is dip into your travel bag for the tooth brush we gave you before you left and, voila, there’s your dentist’s phone number.
- Because we love you!
We like to get to know our patients and believe it’s OK to really smile when you’re at the dentist. If you’re looking for a local East Side Milwaukee dentist who you can really be comfortable with, be sure to schedule a dental appointment today. If you’re already a patient and think we’d be a good fit for someone you know, then refer a friend or family member!
