How Many Times Should We See Dentist In A Year?

Or I should ask...
When did the last time you see a dentist? Most of Malaysian didn't care about their teeth until they are aching. According to the review from the Faculty of Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, seeing dentist twice a year will work well for most of the people. However, some of them may need more than that. Your dentist will help you to check the problem and treat it. Early check up will help you to find early sign of disease or problems.

Dental visit are essential for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gum. Between those visits, it is important for us to keep the gum clean and health. Parents should inculcate oral care habits in children and set example of good dental care to them. For example, encourage their kids of brushing teeth twice daily for the best oral health.

As for me, I will go to dentist twice a year. I have been doing this since I was 18. When we were in school, the government provides school dental care FOR FREE where the dentists and nurses will come and check your teeth, give advice on how to take care of it and fix all the problem you have.

I wrote this entry because I was teaching in my class when a hygienist came and ask for my permission to take my students to their clinic. You know what happen? This one particular boy, who always 'berlagak samseng' refused to go to see the dentist! And even worst, he went to hide in the toilet and ran around school when his classmate tried to get him to the clinic (T_T)

In fact, most of my students HATED hygienist and dentist. Hello, people! Wake up! Go and do the regular check up, wear braces while its still free and cheap!
The result of regular check up and Oral B (Cheese!)
