October is National Dental Hygiene Month

Founded in 1923, the American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) is the largest national organization representing the professional interests of the more than 185,000 registered dental hygienists (RDHs) across the country.

Their message for October, which is National Dental Hygiene Month, revolves around “The Daily 4” and the difference Brushing, Flossing, Rinsing and Chewing can make for your patient’s oral health featured in the poster shown above.

According to their website:

“We know you work hard to ensure your patients practice good dental hygiene on a daily basis. That’s why we want you to showcase your dental hygiene pride not just this month but every day! “
