Taking care of one's teeth: American Dental Association says many Americans don't know basic oral care
from Connection Newspapers
Here's a pop quiz: How often should a person replace their toothbrush? "Once a year," said Terrie Andrews of McLean, Va. When should a parent schedule a child’s first dental appointment? "Just after their 6th birthday," said Julie Mahon, an Alexandria, Va., mother of 2-year-old twins. Both answers are incorrect, but consistent with the findings of a new survey by the American Dental Association, which tested the average person's knowledge of oral healthcare. On average, Americans did not know the answers to questions ranging from how often to brush to what causes cavities.
