October is National Dental Hygiene Month

The American Dental Hygienists' Association and the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company have teamed up for the 6th year in a row to increase awareness about the importance of maintaining good oral health.

This year's theme is "Do the Daily 4" which centers around the four components of good oral health maintenance: brushing teeth twice daily, flossing every day, rinsing with antimicrobial mouth rinse, and chewing sugar-free gum.
