Is An Electric Toothbrush Better?

Some electric toothbrushes these days can be pretty hi-tech. They can vibrate and/or spin back and forth thousands of times faster than your hands can move. Some even have smart phone apps to track how well you do!

It is still important to understand the basic value of brushing and flossing manually, but if using an electric toothbrush leads to brushing longer and better, then I'm all for it !

So whether its used to stimulate excitement in a young smile, or to help brush longer in a busy middle aged smile, or to overcome issues with dexterity or vision loss in an older smile; electric toothbrushes can mean better oral health for all.

Dear Patients,

Dr Campbell and Staff hope you and your families are doing well and staying healthy during this difficult Coronavirus crisis.  The health and well being of our patients, staff, families, and our community as a whole is our top priority.

As you may have already heard, we have been instructed by the Ohio State Dental Board to discontinue elective patient services in the hopes of reducing the risk of spreading this very contagious virus.  We are limiting patient care to emergency services only for the next few weeks and will keep you updated about any changes through emails, texts, and our website.

If you have any dental pain or discomfort or a situation that needs prompt attention, please call the office to leave a message as we are checking our answering service regularly.  You may also contact Dr. Campbell directly at the cell number provided at the end of our greeting message.

We thank you for putting your trust in us to provide for your dental care needs.  We are closely monitoring updates from the State Dental Board as well as the ADA and CDC and will keep you posted as more information is available.

Thank You for your patience and Stay Healthy!

Dr. Scott A Campbell,  DDS, and Staff
