With the advancement of technology and informational wave of iPads and tablets, a really good resource that is free is YouTube. There is an abundance of videos from manufacturers about proper brushing, gingivitis, periodontal disease and so forth. YouTube not only allows us to visually learn the proper way to use a product via demonstration of its use.
Patient education plays such an important role in our appointment time with the patient. It is our goal to education our patients to maintain their oral health through proper oral health measures. When we are explaining procedures to the patient, we give the patients informational brochures for education on that product or procedure.
Below you will find a wide array of interesting and educational links that we feel will benefit your understanding and knowledge of your dental health.
If you have a suggestion for a link that you feel would be of interest, please feel free to email it to us so we can share it with all of our patients.
