​​​​​​On this page is an overview of correct brushing from the American Dental Hygienist Association. This overview has been amended by the OHP4C  2-3-2017


It is important that you have YOUR DENTIST/HYGIENIST show you how to brush IN YOUR MOUTH. We are each unique individuals. 

​NOTE;  YOUR ORAL HEALTH TOOTHBRUSH should NOT be used to clean your tongue. Tongue cleaning is important and will be covered in a future article. Here it is important to remember that in ORAL HEALTHBRUSHING and FLOSSING  the goal is to thoroughly clean and disperse bacteria from all the sides of all the teeth once every twenty four hours. 

Once you learn how to clean your teeth properly with a toothbrush and floss the whole process should take you only 2 minutes per day...an easy way to avoid poor heath and hours in a dental chair. Saves LOTS of money, too.

I have heard this marketing story told for years.There are many versions but all have the same underlying facts.

 Many years ago in the early days of marketing a new, very talented graduate wanted to get a good job.

He heard about a shampoo company that had saturated the market and had no increase in sales for two years. This shampoo company was looking for a smart marketing expert to increase sales. The young, very talented, marketing graduate (the kid) saw this as his chance to shine.  He got an interview with the shampoo company president. He told the shampoo company president  "if you hire me I can double your sales immediately by adding one word to your shampoo label.."   The president didn't believe the kid but decided to hire him on the condition that he did double sales.

Botton Line: The kid doubled sales.

How did he do it? What was the word? The word was "repeat' placed after the phrase

"apply shampoo to wet hair, massage into lather, rinse" REPEAT

Check out your shampoo label..it is 2017.."repeat" has been changed to "follow with our CONDITIONER"

There is a TV/print ad visual version of this marketing tool. The ad shows three or more times the needed product being used. Example: Only use a pea size amount of toothpaste on your brush. (see 3/2017, 2/2017 and 1/2017 articles on this website...these articles will save you money and time in the dental chair AND GIVE YOU A HEALTHY MOUTH)
