"Don't worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try."
I have always tried to practice this motto both personally and professionally-trying to do my best in all aspects of my life. I am a dental hygienist, wife, sister, aunt, friend, and now blogger!
As a hygienist, I still practice clinically part time, while also working for OraCare. OraCare is the product that I found on my personal search for an alternative for Chlorhexidine, that ended up becoming a permanent replacement for use with my patients. If I would have never taken the chance of changing what I did in the dental practice, I would have missed out on providing a great standard of care to my patients, and also would have missed my opportunity to represent the OraCare brand. OraCare is an easy product to stand behind because of its ability to kill pathogens in the mouth, while tasting good enough for patients to actually use it.
I recently presented a webinar about Activated Chlorine Dioxide and Xylitol and all of the benefits that these products offer to your patients. There were a number of great questions that I wanted to be able to provide answers to, and wanted to make sure that anyone wondering the same things would be sure to have those answers as well. So, this blog was created in hopes of providing some additional information on the product, while offering tips on providing quality care to your patients. In the future, not only will I be answering questions about Activated Chlorine Dioxide and Xylitol, but you will also meet some other leaders in dentistry who will be guest writing and providing great advice!
