Dental Hygienists Reveal Their Thoughts & Feelings About Your Visit

Seeing a dentist is a necessary evil we should all be doing once every 6 months. All those gummy bears, ice cream binges, Oreo feasts, and pouring pure sugar down your throats takes its toll on your dental health. Feeling a little twinge here, a little pang there, are pretty good signs that something is not right.

The dentists and dental hygienists who are responsible for fixing your mouth see a lot of ugly teeth during the day. They can take one look at your mouth and know if you’ve regularly flossed, brushed appropriately, and used that painful mouthwash.

Here are some confessions from dental hygienists of what they think of your mouth.


#1 Isn’t it rude if you don’t brush your teeth beforehand? Nobody wants to breathe stink all over your dentist’s face.

#2 As long as they can’t see the disgust in your eyes either.
