Dental Care

What is a Dental Care Plan and why do I need one?

This plan will be done in conjunction with the dentist.  This plan will outline the care instructions a dentist has outlined for the client.  The plan will identify the type of toothbrush to use, the toothpaste they want the client to use, the frequency of when they want the client’s teeth or dentures to be cleaned.

For example: a client may use a manual toothbrush in the morning but an electric toothbrush and interdental brush after dinner at night.
