The Brace Space
The month of April is Oral Health month in Canada. Good oral hygiene is imperative each and every day for overall health. To help bring awareness to our profession and provide a platform for education, April 4th-10th has been set aside as National Dental Hygienists Week. It’s also a time when we honor the work of our fabulous hygienists who dedicate their professional careers to helping patients of all ages maintain excellent oral health. At our clinic, this excellent oral health includes a proper bite and our hygienists are specialized in this area. As for many people, this is not an easy time for our hygienists. Mandatory closures have put them out of work. We are truly saddened by this state of affairs. More than ever our hygienists need our love. Let’s honor them by heeding the message they would have given us by looking after our oral health. You now have the time to pick up that floss, brush a little more carefully or to wear your orthodontic elastics. Just think of the smile you’ll bring to your hygienist’s face the next time they see you! We want to thank them from the bottom of our hearts and hope that things will return to normal soon so we can see them once again.
