In a national online survey of nearly 1,500 consumers across the U.S., the ADA inquired about consumers’ knowledge of oral health and hygiene.
No one aced the test.
Scores ranged from a high of 85 percent correct to a low of 29 percent. The average score overall was 60 percent correct. If the results are any guide, there’s much room for improvement when it comes to educating patients about their oral health.
