One Toothbrush Tip that Keeps the Flu Away

Posted .

Cold and Flu season is upon us. We want to take good care of you when you visit us.

Got a Cold?

It’s time for a new toothbrush. Prevention is key, right? During flu season, we schedule our flu shots but forget to change our toothbrushes!

If we are taking precautions like using hand sanitizer, we can easily replace our toothbrushes at the same time.

Don’t Spread it Around

Cold and flu season seems to get worse every year, especially if you watch the evening news. The thing to remember is this: it’s preventable. Hand washing and replacing your toothbrush are steps in the right direction.

And here at the office, we take every precaution to keep you and ourselves free of germs. We wear masks and gloves for this very reason. As long as you are not actively contagious, you should definitely keep your regularly scheduled dental appointment.

As always, we hope you are healthy and well!
