Before they start the cleaning, each child is encouraged to pick a toothpaste flavor that will be used. After the assistant has finished cleaning the teeth, the dentist will check for cavities by “counting” the teeth. They will then go over proper care for maintaining good oral hygiene with the patient and the parent. Such as brushing and flossing techniques.
