I really hate going to the dentist. It’s uncomfortable, it takes precious time out of my busy day and just plain boring. Last month I went in to the dentist for my yearly check up. I had my normal cleaning with the Dental Hygienist. Then I sat and waited for the Dentist to come in. He finally made it to my little room. Then I endured the usual small talk….
Ok, let’s get down to business. As he is finally inspecting my pearly whites, he says “Megan, I am so glad to see you’re flossing regularly!” Well, I lied and said, “well of course! Thank you.”
I DON’T floss. I never have. I know that I should, but I just don’t.
About a year prior to that last visit to the Dentist I switched from an Oral B electric Toothbrush to a Philips Sonicare electric brush. What a difference. I mean, Hello!!?! My Dentist thinks I floss!
I have convinced everyone in my family and my office to invest
in themselves by getting the Sonicare brush. Seriously, I should work for them. Everyone who has made the switch has had great results. Dentists are losing business because of the toothbrush!
Oh, and yes, against my dentist’s advice, I whiten my teeth with good old Crest Whitestrips.
