Every day at Lifesmiles Family Dentisty, we get questions from patients asking for our opinions on which toothpaste to buy, which electric toothbrush is best, alternatives for those who hate flossing, how to get the kids to brush and floss, how health and oral health are related, and so many more!
We think these pages are a great resource and may be helpful to you in your quest for good oral health and good overall health. Remember, oral health impacts the health of your whole body.
Oral Health = Overall Health = good Quality of Life
This American Dental Association sponsored website covers all things dental.
A California dentist with a blog “Ask the Dentist” has an honest approach to answering your toughest, important dental questions, like “How not to get ripped off at the dentist”. We like his style as his values mirror ours.
Kids and their teeth: from babies to teens
For Kids, getting them to brush twice per day, every day, can be challenging, so this site is a great tool for parents.
Who do kids (and parents) trust most to teach them just about everything? Sesame Street, of course! Check this toolkit for help with teaching your kids how to be teeth healthy! If you need a brushing chart to keep track, download one here.
