A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, Men’s Health Magazine ranked 100 U.S. cities on their dental health. Any guesses on how Boston stacked up? Well, we weren’t in the bottom ten, but we were alarmingly close. Boston ranked #78.
There’s Room For Improvement
We can do better! Good dental habits aren’t just important for your teeth. Oral health is strongly connected to overall health.
The scores were based on:
- Missing Teeth Count: Missing teeth are a sign of disease and neglect.
- Fluoride: Many locations have a fluoride supplement in the water supply, which reinforces tooth enamel.
- Floss Purchased: That’s right. Flossing is that important.
- Regular Checkups: Your regular appointments keep your teeth healthy and prevent trouble down the road.
Now, we’re pretty sure that if they had exclusively surveyed our patients, all of you would have passed with flying colors. Here at Dental Partners of Boston, we consider ourselves your partners in dental health. We’re dedicated to teaching you more about good oral health habits and catching problems before they start.
