“Truth be told, the dentist terrified me and I always had a reason to put it off. When I heard their motto, ‘We Cater to Cowards’, I laughed a little, but as it turns out, they really do. I can proudly say I no longer fear the dentist!”
- Erica, patient since ‘09

There are five surfaces on each tooth and if you do not floss, you leave two of those surfaces full of bacteria. If you are not a regular flosser, you may bleed when  you floss for the first few weeks.
