While this can be a challenging time for all of us by staying at home as much as possible to help stop the spread of COVID-19, there are a few things available to help. We have prepared a list of resources and items that we can all use to help get through our stay at home.
DON'T NEGLECT YOUR ORAL CARE
It's vital during this time to maintain your oral health at home. If your oral care needed improvement before, this is an ideal time to improve it. Remember to follow recommended guidelines by brushing your teeth at least twice daily and flossing in the morning and before bed. Remove the food buildup between teeth and gums accumulated throughout the day before you go to bed.
