Friday FilmStrips: Oral Hygiene and You

December 3, 2010

We don’t spend a lot of time talking about Dental Insurance here, and we probably should, because new studies have linked bad oral hygiene to everything from the potential for blood clots to early warnings of osteoporosis. If you have a health insurance plan through work, check to see if you also have dental insurance, and if you do – USE IT. If you don’t have dental coverage, you can usually get a cleaning and basic exam extremely inexpensively at a local dental school.

Either way, our video this week is all about oral hygiene.
