Dorm shopping? Don’t forget this essential item.

The anticipation of heading out to the college dormitory is exciting. You’ve got to shop for  bedding, storage solutions, school supplies, and new clothes. But don’t forget to think about what you’ll need in the bathroom… including a new toothbrush!

You’ll want mementos that remind you of home, but it doesn’t need to be that worn-out, ineffective old toothbrush you’ve been using. Start your new academic year with a new toothbrush, and you’ll be on a path to better dental care while you’re away from home.

Some college students prefer an electric toothbrush, but if you’ve got to use a communal bathroom, a traditional brush may be more convenient. Be sure that when your brush is not in use that it’s allowed to air dry thoroughly.

While you’re out shopping for dorm supplies this week, your Jacksonville dentist reminds you to pick up a new toothbrush. And call us for your next cleaning appointment!
