Theodora (Teddie) Little has combined her love of dentistry, public education and academia to develop a career within this area. She comments on how to make oral hygiene a priority for patients and reflects on the Curaden products she recommends to patients:

“For prevention to become a priority, we need to consider the priming and perception to enable behaviour change towards it. Start the appointment with the long-term priority. This holds a psychological narrative and ensures that the preventive part is delivered when both patient and practitioner are most attentive.

“In addition, the oral hygiene products that patients use, and how they use them, will impact their health. I’ve been using Curaprox manual toothbrushes for as many years as I can remember and am a huge fan. In particular, I recommend the CS 5460 toothbrush as I find it to be extremely gentle but effective. Other solutions I like include the Curaprox interdental brushes which have the added benefit of being environmentally-friendly with lifetime handles that only require replacement tips.”
