Five Reasons We Give You a Tooth Brush

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. You need a new grout scrubber
    The bristles on your current grout scrubber look like Albert Einstein’s hairdo.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
