Queen of Dental Hygiene’s Year of Posts! Happy Anniversary!
Wow! This week marks the one year anniversary of the Queen of Dental Hygiene blog! I’ve got 47 posts on a wide variety of topics. I’ve learned so much, hope you have too. Just when I think I’ve exhausted my repertoire, along comes a patient with a question or comment. That gets me thinking- “Ohhh, what a great idea for a blog post”. I’ve enjoyed writing, researching, learning and then sharing these with you. So far I’ve had 6,700 pageviews. Not bad for a small town dental hygienist writing about teeth, gums and bad breath! Thank you everyone for your comments, ideas, encouragement and support. Today’s post will be a directory of the year, organized by categories.
Introduction- who I am, why I do what I do, and where I do it. I love my profession, and hope it shows.

The Toothbrush My preference is the electric kind, just like I prefer an electric screw driver or an electric mixer. Who does that stuff by hand anymore? Power tools just do a better, faster job.

Conquer your Dental Fears and Phobias Your dentist wants you to be healthy, and not going just makes it worse. Finding the right dentist can make all the difference.
Healing From Within- your “Fuel” Matters So which is better: cookies or fruit…
Let’s make Oral Cancer Extinct Screen yourself just like they recommend for breast cancer.
