Working from home certainly has its perks. Maybe you get to work out in the morning or take more time to enjoy your coffee. Maybe you get to eat breakfast with the kids before they head off to school. Maybe you get to work in loungewear or gym clothes. And you definitely might enjoy waking up a little later with no commute. Just remember your oral health if you work from home.

Here’s what we mean. When you don’t have to be around your coworkers in person (they can’t smell your breath!), you might skip your morning brushing or “brush in a rush.” Either can quickly lead to cavities and gingivitis, both of which require dental care.

Take a preventive approach by brushing at least two minutes on every side with fluoridated toothpaste. Do this twice daily and floss too. You’ll save time, pain, and money on future dental work with this effective habit.

Even if you’ve neglected your oral health or have missed a few checkups, we give some of the most thorough exams and cleanings in Richmond! We’ll get your oral health back on track so your smile shines again.
