Why Is The ADA Seal A BIG Deal?

Jim Carrey

I’m almost as excited as Jim Carrey’s character, Ace Ventura, to share the following news with you!

Did you know that only ONE power toothbrush has received the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance? It is a BIG deal!

FACT: Oral health products that have the ADA Seal of Acceptance simplifies the consumers decision to buy. Simply stated, 71% of you trust the products with this seal and move forward in buying it!

What about the recommendations from your dental professional? 3 out of 5 dental patients will invest in the oral health product that was specifically recommended by their dentist, dental hygienist or dental assistant.

The question is has your dental professional shared this information with you?

Have you seen it on their dental practice social media pages?

I can tell you that I have not seen it and yes I DO check dental practice fan pages! Why aren’t they informing their patients? 

There are 8 power toothbrushes that have this honor. I am obsessed with the Oral-B Genius for many reasons. The research to both safely AND effectively remove plaque is proven. The sensor to alert me when I’m brushing too hard will save my gums and discourage tooth sensitivity. Gum recession has many contributing factors, yet brushing too hard is habit driven. The position detection device on the app, makes me feel like I’ve got an oral fitness coach that helps me reach my fitness goal of health! It reminds me when to discard the toothbrush head and replace it! How many times do we forget to replace our toothbrushes even though we’ve noticed the bristles look like they are begging for mercy!

When your smile is fit, your health reflects it!

To gain the ADA seal, your product’s claim can’t be lame. That claim has to be backed up by researching the evidence based studies, investigating the manufacturing process for safety, reviewing the mode of action, therapeutic agents to prove its level of efficacy.  It is a comforting feeling to know that what I recommend to you, for your current state of oral health has received the honor of the ADA seal.

I’ve provided you my weekly vlog to view! SHARE it!

Hand Washing Song | Revised For Fun

Anastasia’s Hump Day Happenings: Hand Washing Song 

Remember when your mom would ask you “did you wash your hands”? It felt like such a chore! I admit, getting into the healthcare profession + having my dad battle leukemia, my hand washing may be overkill or OCD to some … there are worse habits … like not doing it at all! So Gross!

Truth is; our hands touch so many surfaces from keyboards, smart phones, pens, door knobs, mail, money, shopping carts, gas nozzles, ATM machines, etc. Bacteria simply hitch a ride from that surface to your hand, fingertips, under your finger nails.

Yep! All good until you shake hands, fist pump then BAM! You are spreading disease! Ewwww!

All it takes is soap & water! It doesn’t matter if the water is cold or hot … just wash the front + back of your hand + each finger … it will take you at least 20 seconds!

You can also use 60% alcohol hand sanitizer the same way.

It is for your own protection … and for those around you! Give the gift of health & wash your hands!
