When asked recently, “What would be your most important tip for your patients?,” Taylor shared the following:
“Don’t forget to clean your tongue! Clean the surface of your tongue daily. By using a professional tongue cleaner you remove countless bacteria that otherwise live, particularly on the rougher top surface of your tongue. These can contribute to bad breath (halitosis) and negatively affect your dental health.” ~ Taylor
Dawn has been a hygienist with CCFD since 2009. She is a graduate of East Tennessee State University and earned her BS in Dental Hygiene in 2001. She and her husband, Brian, are both active in the community and stay busy raising their 2 children. Dawn also enjoys shopping & traveling whenever she can.
When asked recently, “What would be your most important tip for your patients?,” Dawn shared the following:
“Don’t forget to look at the bigger picture. Everyone understands that you should take care of your teeth to avoid toothaches, maintain your looks and keep dental bills at bay. Many people, however, don’t understand how crucial oral health is to our total health picture. Tooth problems can lead to diabetes, heart disease, systemic infections, an inability to eat or speak properly and other maladies – some life-threatening. Crooked or crowded teeth can contribute to gum disease that can eventually lead to tooth loss. Straight teeth are no longer just for looks.” ~ Dawn
Pam has extensive experience as a dental hygienist. After graduating from the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene, Pam began working for Camellia City Family Dentistry at our Slidell office. She has 24 years of dental hygiene experience and has great advise to share for current and potential patients!
When asked recently, “What would be your most important tip for your patients?,” Pam shared the following:
“Don’t forget to floss! I know that it is a chore and a lot of times my patients may forget to floss after brushing. Especially if you are rushing out of the door or heading to bed. However, flossing can help you remove food particles and other detrimental substances that brushing regularly cannot. Flossing allows you to reach deep between your teeth where the toothbrush bristles cannot reach or even mouthwash cannot wash away. We recommend flossing at least once a day.” ~ Pam
