For both dentists and orthodontists, it can be challenging to ensure that patients practice good dental hygiene on a daily basis. That’s why National Dental Hygiene Month is a great time to do that.
Start conversations about the Daily 4: 1) brushing, 2) flossing, 3) rinsing, and 4) chewing. Encourage patients to incorporate these four components of proper oral health maintenance into their daily routine. It is also a great time to remind patients to schedule their next cleaning.
About 85% of patients say they want more communication from their medical providers, and promoting National Dental Hygiene Month gives you a great opportunity to connect.
