Why am I giving advice on Dentalisty?
I love working in private practice, but one of things I love most about dentistry is that there is a major non-clinical part and more of an educational aspect. I enjoy collaborating with different writers and marketing companies to come with content that is relevant for everyone.
What started your love for all things related to oral hygiene?
I think because there is such a major link between oral health and our general systemic health, I push preventive care, even in my own practice. It is less invasive and much more affordable to take care of your teeth at home than to do an uncomfortable procedure for a patient.
What’s your all-time favorite toothbrush?
I am a little strange because I have access to some of the most incredible toothbrushes, but I choose to use an off brand, super soft-bristle toothbrush because it is gentle on my gums. If I had to recommend one to patients, it would be a Sonicare electric toothbrush because it has so many modern features that help improve someone’s oral hygiene.
What’s your number one mouthcare tip you want to share with the world?
Brush your tongue! I think when people brush and floss well, but still come back reporting a bad taste in the mouth, they typically don’t brush their tongue. A good tongue scraper is one of my favorite, unique oral care tools I use. It will keep your mouth feeling fresh much longer.
What are your social media links?
