Study Finds Most Children Aren’t Brushing or Flossing Enough

Study Finds Most Children Aren’t Brushing or Flossing Enough


A Recent Survey: 30% Of Children Under 12 Do Not Brush Twice Per Day, 60% Do Not Floss Daily.

The Dental Tribune (2/6) reports that as part of NCDHM Delta Dental has released the results of a new survey “to raise awareness about the importance of oral health in children” that found “relatively poor oral care behavior in under 12-year-olds that contributes to many American children having cavities.” Specifically, the survey found that “only 28 percent of U.S. parents would give their children an A grade for oral health.” Additionally, the survey found that “over 30 percent of the children did not brush twice a day and over 60 percent did not floss on a daily basis.”

Today there are tooth brushes with timers, ones that play music-some even light up for the 2 minutes required for brushing.  Making it fun is the key to keeping children’s interest in brushing!

Had my first visit to Dr. Mullaney’s office this month since the pandemic and the experience was gold standard. The safety processes and clean office environment were impeccable. Dr. Mullaney and staff were, as usual, amazing. Every step was explained, the protective garments worn by staff were the best I have experienced. It was a safe and positive visit and I recommend making an appointment!!

I am a new patient. After my first dentist appointment with Dr. Mullaney, I left feeling very informed and in control of ultimately making decisions about the care and treatment I receive. The staff is incredibly kind and knowledgeable. I love that they participate in helping veterans through The Freedom Day USA program. They are committed to providing a very clean and friendly atmosphere. In addition this practice goes out of its way to bring comfort and the latest in dentistry to all their patients.

I never thought that a person could enjoy going to the dentist until I started seeing Dr. Mullaney. Her attractive and serene office and Dr. Mullaney and her competent and friendly staff make every visit a pleasure. They have a gift for making each experience smooth and efficient, with meticulous attention to the patient’s needs and comfort. On a scale of 1 to 10 this practice is a 15!

Dr. Mullaney and her staff are absolutely wonderful. They are very professional, personable and greet you by name when you walk in the door. Dr. Mullaney is very talented and really has perfected her craft. Even with a last-minute treatment change, she is unwavering in performing the highest quality treatment available. I am extremely grateful to you all for making my visit pleasant and even fun!
