If you start early, you can ensure this year will be a success for your teeth and gums once more. We recommend that you make a resolution for oral health care habits every year be better than the previous one.

To see how you stacked up last year, take the year in review: oral health care quiz now:

– Did you avoid chewing or smoking tobacco, along with other products that can harm your teeth and gums?
– Did you use safe teeth-whitening products or went to Arden Dental Group for professional treatments?
– Did you use any cleaning products after eating to limit the damage of harmful acids?
