In light of the strong interest in the Enhancing Oral and Community Health offer we have decided to extend the offer into 2015.
We have also decided to invite a larger number of local non-profits to participate as potential recipients of patient directed donations. We welcome your suggestions around additional non-profits to be considered as partners in the program and if you have family and friends you feel may be interested in participating in the offer we would welcome your referral.

Should I floss first or should I brush first? This is one of the most common questions we get asked here at Artisan Dental. The ADA (American Dental Association http://www.ada.org/en/science-research/ada-seal-of-acceptance/product-category-information/floss-and-other-interdental-cleaners) recommends that as long as you are flossing once a day and brushing the recommended two times a day, which comes first doesn’t really matter. Some people like to brush their teeth first and then get the residual plaque out from in between the teeth with the floss after brushing. Others like to use dental floss first to remove plaque from in between the teeth and then brush the rest away. As long as you are doing a thorough job with home care, it is personal preference.
