Oral Hygiene Education

Nowadays, there’s a lot of information floating around about how to best care for your body – and your teeth. Since there is no one-size-fits-all answer for oral health, we at Smile Hilliard focus on educating each patient on their specific oral health needs and how to properly care for their teeth at home.

Our Approach to Oral Hygiene Education

We take pride in doing more than a simple checkup and cleaning when we see our patients. Home dental care education is typically done as part of our complete oral examinations, which allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of your at home routine and educate you on areas where you can improve. This could be anything from educating on proper flossing and tooth brushing techniques to recommendations on restricting acidic foods or eliminating bad habits like smoking.

Additionally, Smile Hilliard is a patient-focused practice, built on the relationship between the doctor and the patient. As a result, we don’t simply tell our patients what to do but rather involve them in their care, listening to their needs and concerns and educating them on how they can positively impact their oral health.

Recommended At Home Care

While every patient is different, we generally recommend the following oral hygiene best practices and at home care to our patients:
