  1. Flossfish? I love it! They're adorable!

  2. My two kids wish they had had this available back in the day. Flossing the old fashioned way was very inconvenient.

  3. A friend of mine mentioned that it's difficult to floss her teeth when she had braces. That's why she only used the best dental floss product when flossing her teeth. Her dentist Greer, South Carolina area even taught her on how to effectively floss her teeth. Based on a dentistry Greenville, South Carolina news article, flossing is critical and is often neglected by many, when it comes to dental health care. However, flossing need to be done regularly to ensure optimum health of our gums and teeth. Nice blog, Pamela! Thanks for the post!
