3 Types of Parents Who Bring their Kids to the Dentist

A fear of dentistry is a fear of unknown for a child who visit the dentist for the first time. Well, I've got three types of parents who bring their children to see me. First one would be, "Yeah, dentist, you will be fine, "and we're just going to say hi to the dentist "and get your teeth checked." The second one would be, "Yeah, we're going to the dentist, "you have to behave, okay? "You're not gonna be scared, "you're not gonna be worried. "You are cool! "Cool dude, you can do it!" The third one. They'll start sweating the previous day, "You know you've got this dentist appointment,...

When Do You Need to Change Your Toothbrush

You have to change your toothbrush once every two months. I don't think females would ask that question. You know, they want to change their toothbrush every week. It depends on who is asking me. If men ask me, I would say, "Once every year." No, just a joke. It has to be changed about once every two months or three months would be ideal. It doesn't matter, male or female.
