Oral Health Month with Parker, CO Dentist
In honor of Oral Health Month this June, we wanted to take the time to highlight some of Dr. Green’s oral health habits. We understand that the dental office isn’t for everyone, but we hope this interview with your favorite Parker, CO dentist motivates you to take better care of your oral health.
Dr. Christopher Green’s Journey
Dr. Green developed a robust ethical foundation at a young age by following in the footsteps of two well-respected dentists in the Chicago area, his father, and grandfather.
Dr. Green obtained his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Temple University School of Dentistry. There, he earned the graduating status of Magna Cum Laude. Dr. Green has always enjoyed working with his team and helping patients to regain confidence in their smile.
His Medicine Cabinet
When opening Dr. Green’s medicine cabinet, you may be surprised to find not one, but two toothbrushes. Here’s a look at Dr. Green’s medicine cabinet:
- Sonicare Toothbrush
- Soft Bristle Manual Toothbrush
- Glide Floss
- Alcohol-Free Listerine
Dr. Green is very particular about maintaining good oral health. His friend Dr. Beth Herko, a general dentist in New Providence, NJ, also loves her Sonicare toothbrush. Out of all these products and tools, what do you think is his absolute favorite? Yep, you guessed it – floss! Like many dental professionals, Dr. Green believes that flossing is an essential part of any oral health care regimen.
Oral Health Advice to Patients
Did you know that gum disease and cavities are 100% preventable? When we asked Dr. Green his number one advice he could give a patient about their oral health, he said that you could follow these simple steps to avoid cavities:
- Watch sugar intake
- Brush immediately after surgery, meal, or beverage
- Brush & Floss Daily
Common Myths About Oral Health
At Green Dental Care, Dr. Green and Dr. Andrei Ionescu sometimes get questions and concerns about oral health myths. One common myth patients believe is that WaterPiks replace flossing. This is not true! WaterPiks should be used in addition to flossing. Don’t forget this essential part of your oral health routine!
