A key factor in achieving optimal oral health is ensuring that teeth and mouths are being cared for regularly. This National Dental Hygiene Month, Delta Dental highlights findings from a recent study showing that adults and children across America continue to practice proper oral health habits at home. The study found that, on average, children and adults:

  • Brushed their teeth twice per day
  • Flossed their teeth once per day
  • Used mouthwash once per day
