Oral hygiene poster

October 01, 2012

A poster on daily oral health care targeted to dental patients and suitable for dental office display was packaged with the Oct. 1 ADA News.


Measuring 19½ by 26 inches, the poster was reviewed for accuracy in the ADA divisions of Science and Dental Practice.

The poster, titled “Protecting Your Smile—Tips on caring for your teeth and gums,” stresses the importance of making healthy choices, from healthy eating to regular dental visits. It also emphasizes the role of the dentist, and the need for dentist and patient to work together for optimum oral health.

The poster includes recommendations on basic brushing and flossing, and the use of an ADA-accepted mouthrinse “when brushing and flossing are not enough to keep your gums healthy.” It also urges patients to look for products bearing the ADA Seal of Acceptance.

Members who wish to order an extra copy of the poster should email
