FLOSS IS BOSS
By: Elizabeth Dunkleberger DDS
According to a national survey, over
one quarter of people tell white lies to their
dentist about flossing. (Pssst... We see
through them every time.) In fact, 7% of
people would rather hear the sound of nails
on a chalkboard than floss. 18% would rather
wash dishes. 9% would rather do their taxes!
The real truth is, flossing is a critical part
of your daily oral hygiene routine and should
never be skipped.
Commit to flossing for just two minutes
during your bedtime routine and you’ll have
a clean, fresh, healthy mouth… Something
we all want!
