While wearing braces, maintaining good oral hygiene is of the utmost importance. With the Hygiene Rewards Program, you receive one-on-one instruction and clear advice on how to improve your oral health while in active orthodontic treatment. As well, we will assess your oral hygiene and provide a score at every appointment. Our scoring system is based on a simple five-level oral hygiene rating system that lets you know how you are doing at each visit: 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 (Poor, Needs Improvement, Fair, Good, or Excellent).
If you receive a couple of "Poor", "Needs Improvement" or several "Fair" scores, we will schedule you for the oral care instruction part of our program for further hygiene training. We will advise you of our concerns and a plan to help you get back on track. Our goal is to help our patients to achieve healthy, beautiful smiles.
With this new program, you earn points by having Good to Excellent oral hygiene scores.
Excellent (5) = 2 points.
Good (4) = 1 point.
You can even receive 2 bonus points by having your dentist's office sign one of our vouchers when you go in for your regular checkup /cleaning. You may CLICK HERE to access the voucher to take to your dentist. These reward points can be redeemed for a variety of prizes. (Redeemable every 5 points.)
To keep track of points, you will receive a points card. Every time you get points, we will stamp your card. Make sure you bring your points card to every regular appointment. If you forget your card, you cannot obtain any points for that appointment. Points can only be rewarded at regular visits, not emergency appointments.
See Carmen at the front desk to pick up your points card!
