Take the Tooth Brushing Challenge Quiz

Take the Tooth Brushing Challenge Quiz… Most People are Surprised!

It's National Brush Day, the day after Halloween, and the time to unstick all that cavity-causing candy from your teeth and brush, brush, BRUSH! (& floss!)

Speaking of... how polished is your oral hygiene? When was the last time you thought about replacing your toothbrush, or how much toothpaste you should use?

Think you really know how to brush properly? Take our quiz and find out!

Click through the slides to answer just 6 short questions to see how brushed up on your oral care you are:

Which type of brush is most effective?

  • A regular manual toothbrush
  • An electric toothbrush
  • Either one

Either one! They're both effective.

Both manual and power toothbrushes have what it takes to get the job done! Power brushes may be helpful for people who have trouble brushing on their own or are prone to more plaque buildup.

How often should you replace your toothbrush?

  • When your dentist gives you a new one
  • Every three to four months
  • Once a year

Every three to four months

Yes we give you a new toothbrush at each visit, but make sure you are changing them between appointments, too. The bristles on your toothbrush wear out over time and a worn toothbrush won’t keep your teeth as clean.

Want an easy trick to remember to change your brush every 3-4 months? New season, new toothbrush!

🌱 ☀️ 🍂 ❄️

How much is too much toothpaste to use?

  • The full length of the brush’s bristles
  • The size of a pea
  • The size of a grain of rice

A pea-sized amount.

Adults and children age 3 and older should brush with a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Children younger than 3 should use a smear of fluoride toothpaste the size of a grain of rice.

What kind of bristles should your brush have?

  • Firm
  • Medium
  • Soft

Soft.

Always choose a soft-bristled brush. Firm or even medium-strength bristles may cause damage to your gums and enamel.

When brushing your teeth, don’t scrub vigorously - only brush hard enough to clean the film off your teeth. Your fluoride toothpaste will do the rest of the work.

Also, if you flossed before brushing (of course you did 'cause you're so smart right!?), that should have gotten a lot of the stuck bits in hard-to-reach places.

How often should you brush your teeth?

  • Once a day
  • Twice a day
  • When you have bad breath

Either one! They're both effective.

You should brush your teeth twice a day, ideally when you wake up in the morning and again before going to bed at night (and remember what we just mentioned about flossing, that's right, you want to do that twice a day too - see, you're so smart!)

Floss first, then brush, 2x per day.

How long should you brush your teeth for?

  • 30 seconds
  • 2 minutes
  • Until your teeth feel clean

2 minutes

Brush 2 minutes each time, twice a day for healthier teeth, good breath, fewer cavities, and to avoid painful dental problems.

Since Halloween was just last night and many of us are still in the mood, we found this video appropriate to help you kids focus on brushing their teeth. It's @ 2 mins long (hint for one of the answers in the quiz!) and it's a fun, silly, spooky song to help kids to continue brushing their teeth and get out all those icky cavity, plaque and gingivitis monsters from inside their mouths (and yours too no doubt 😉 )

Speaking of helping your kids brush their teeth long enough (and not get bored), we put together a playlist of 2 minute videos (oops, another hint!) that you can choose each morning and night (yikes, another clue! geez, we're giving away the answers) to entertain your kids with a different video each time. From songs and raps, to action and mystery, there's something to keep kids up to age 7 (approx.) interested.

Of course a post about how to brush your teeth properly, wouldn't be complete without a video about How to Brush Your Teeth Properly. So here it is. It's an older style (as most dental-educational videos are), but the information is still accurate today.

Healthy Halloween Fun for Kids

This is the last weekend before Halloween! Your kids must be so excited! Do they have costumes already? Or are you doing some last minute costume shopping this weekend? (hey, it happens!) This is also a great weekend for fun Halloween activities like pumpkin carving and kid-friendly spooky events around Victoria.

Sometimes it seems kids get so excited for Halloween that they can hardly sit still the few days leading up to it. It can drive any parent mad!

That's why we put together this MASSIVE (68 pages to be exact!) Halloween colouring and activity printout ebook for you to download to help occupy your kids this weekend (& did we mention it's 100% FREE!).

There are pages for both you and the kids to colour, activity pages that will also (sneakily) educate them about being tooth healthy and candy safe this year (obviously we had to throw that in!), games to play, masks to cut out (in case you still need a costume) and even pumpkin carving stencils. Like we said, it's HUGE! There is a lot in this free ebook to keep your kids busy this weekend.

Just download the book and print what you want to use. That's it!

And we would be remiss if we didn't include a guide to help you and your kids determine the best and worst candies when it comes to cavity criminals. This handy cheat sheet from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry makes it quick and easy to figure out the worst offenders:

Hope you have a spectacularly spooky and SAFE Halloween!

Toss Away the “Could Haves” and “Should Haves” Day

The third Saturday in July is Toss Away The “Could Haves” and “Should Haves” Day. If you’ve never heard of this unusual holiday, it’s all about moving forward.

On Toss Away The “Could Haves” and “Should Haves” Day, everyone is encouraged to write down all the things in their life that are holding them back. On this day, step away from past worries and regrets and focus entirely on the present.

Summer may seem like an odd time to be making resolutions like this, but it’s actually the perfect time of the year. Things are slower and quieter. This hot-weather lull is the ideal time to reflect on the things that are keeping you from fully appreciating the present.

So, what are some things that you can let go of on this Toss Away The “Could Haves” and “Should Haves” Day?

1. Paths not taken

It is easy to play back past decisions and wonder if things could have been better. But just remember that the choices you made in the past made you who you are today! So today, toss away all the thoughts of “I could have had a better job” or “I should have moved to a different home” and focus on new choices going forward. After all, no one can change the past!

2. Things you failed to achieve

There are few things that sting more than dreams you tried to achieve and just simply fell short of. Whether it was a failed exam, a flubbed interview, or a broken relationship, those failures leave a mark, making it difficult to move past them. But it is important to remember that no one is defined by their failures. Encourage yourself to remember your triumphs as well, maybe by writing them down after you toss your failures in the trash.

3. Not being good enough

There are so many reasons that we beat ourselves up. Whether we don’t feel like we’ve reached our full potential or we’re frustrated with the same failures again and again, it is all too easy to give ourselves more blame than we deserve. On this Toss Away The “Could Haves” and “Should Haves”, resolve not to define yourself by your past failures or by criteria you measure yourself by. Instead, set realistic goals for yourself and resolve to try your best. None of us can do any better than that!

What’s Next?

So, what should you do after you toss away your “could haves” and “should haves”?

Follow it up with a couple of resolutions about how things will be, going forward. Maybe this is the time to challenge yourself to try something you have always wanted to do but haven’t yet dared to. Or maybe you want to make simple daily resolutions — something as simple as improving your dental care or scheduling an annual checkup.

No matter how big or small your goals are, they should be about looking forward. That’s what this day is all about!

International Kissing Day

It’s International Kissing Day, and that means — well, it means that you should go give your loved ones a kiss. At Victoria Dental, we know that kissing is one of many things that can affect the health of your mouth. But don’t worry, we won’t regale you with any icky details about bacteria. Instead, here are five interesting facts about your mouth.

1. Enamel

Enamel is the hardest substance in your entire body. This is the outermost layer of your teeth — the layer that you see when you talk, laugh, or smile. But even though it is incredibly hard, enamel can still be damaged by unhealthy eating or oral hygiene practices, like chewing on ice or neglecting to brush your teeth every day.

2. Taste Buds

The average person has 10,000 taste buds, the tiny buds on your tongue that help you sense and process flavour in food and other substances. However, you will have much more than 10,000 taste buds over the course of your life. Your body completely replaces them every two weeks. Taste buds also don’t work alone — they need saliva to help them taste food.

3. Saliva

Saliva might seem disgusting to you, but it is actually a highly complex part of the mouth and plays a significant role there. Not only is it instrumental in tasting food, but it also is a vital part of helping prevent tooth decay. Saliva helps wash away harmful bacteria so that it doesn’t sit on your enamel all day and eat away at it.

But that doesn’t mean that it’s free of its own bacteria. In fact, one millimetre holds roughly 100 million individual bacteria. Just think about that the next time you swallow. On top of that, the average person produces between one and two litres of saliva every single day.

4. Teeth

You may not believe it, but teeth are highly unique. Your teeth and your tongue print are as unique to you as your fingerprints are. Archaeologists can tell an enormous amount of information about the people whose teeth they find. This includes everything from their diet during their life to their age when they died, and sometimes even their cause of death.

Your teeth are actually living bones, and they still have the capacity to grow and shift during your lifetime. However, they are no longer likely to develop significantly after you reach adulthood.

5. Tongue

The tongue is a unique part of your mouth for a number of reasons. It is the only muscle in the body that is not attached to your bones in any way. Instead, it is attached to your throat by a slim layer of tissue. But, size being relative, it is the strongest muscle in your body. It might be more fitting to say groups of muscles because the tongue is actually made up of muscle sections designed to help you speak, eat, and push food around in your mouth and towards your throat.

What to Get Your Mother For Mother’s Day (That Isn’t Candy)

Spring might be a festive season, but it’s not exactly a good time for teeth. If you are looking ahead, you know that Mother’s Day is coming up. Your mother has done everything for you, so you can’t forget her! Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to give her something unhealthy. Traditional Mother’s Day gifts might include flowers, cards, and chocolates, but let’s face it, you can do better!

Studies show that more and more, people are turning to gifts that have practical purposes or are meaningful. So what are the best gifts for Mother’s Day that are thoughtful, unique, and won’t wreck Mom’s teeth?


  1. An Experience for the Two of You to Share

Let’s face it: Your mom always wants to spend more time with you, and your life probably gets far too busy to make that happen as often as she’d like. Why not think of her favourite hobbies and book a time for you to enjoy them together? Maybe your mother loves to paint and would enjoy a paint-and-sip class with you. Or maybe she’s a fan of salsa dancing and would love to spend an evening at a local ballroom. Whatever her interests, taking the time to enjoy them with her will earn you the title of Favourite Child.

  1. A Gift with Meaning 

Anyone can buy an expensive gift, but mothers would rather have a homemade gift that comes from the heart. This is an especially great choice if you are running low on cash. There is no need to spend a lot of money; just remind her of a fond memory! Whether that means a framed photo of the family at a special event or a collage of postcards from all the trips you’ve taken together, be creative. Making a gift from the heart will mean so much to your mom. If you think you’re too old to be making collages for your mother, ask her what she thinks of the idea. We bet you’ll see some waterworks.

  1. A Gift That Helps Her Relax

Show your appreciation for all the hard work that your mother does by treating her to some TLC. Whether this means a day at the spa, a massage, or a special bubble bath mix, there are tons of options for helping your mother kick back and take a break. Let her know that you are grateful for all those late nights, homework assignments, and home-cooked dinners by helping her get off her feet.

If you want a gift that keeps on giving, consider signing her up for a self-care subscription. There are companies that will deliver monthly packages right to your door, filled with lotions, bath bombs, and other self-care products. No one works as hard as a mom – and that’s why no one should relax as hard as a mom.


This Mother’s Day, you don’t need to rely on kitschy cards or unhealthy sweets. Show your mother that you care with a more personal gift!

Mother Goose Day

National Mother Goose day takes place this week and, believe it or not, that means something incredibly important. Mother Goose day celebrates reading while also lending an opportunity to incorporate educational elements. For example, both reading and dental care are vital to children, and it’s important to teach them about these topics when they’re still young. But how can you get your strong-willed toddler or grumpy kindergartner to brush their teeth? Why not encourage them with a book? Here is a list of the best dentist- and Mother Goose-approved books for kids about brushing their teeth.


  1. Brush, Brush, Brush! By Alicia Padron

This clever board book is for toddlers who are just starting to learn the concept of keeping their teeth clean and healthy. Set to the tune of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat,” the book is easy to sing and easy for kids to learn and remember. It begins, “Are your teeth clean and white, do you brush them day and night?” With an easy-to-memorize tune, it’s also the perfect way to make actual teeth brushing a little easier for your toddler. Just sing the toothbrushing song and with any luck, you’ll cut back on the tantrums.

  1. Sesame Street’s Ready, Set, Brush!

If you have a little Elmo or Cookie Monster fan in your house, this book is the perfect way to encourage them to learn about taking care of their teeth. Children are naturally resistant to brushing their teeth, so seeing their favourite fictional friends brush makes the process much easier. Here’s a pro tip to make it even better: There’s a special Elmo teeth-brushing song that encourages children to brush each section of their mouth, rinse, and spit. Just be forewarned: it’s catchy and you’ll be singing it all day.

  1. Sugarbug Doug, by Dr. Ben Magleby

You’ll notice that the author’s name has a title in front of it. Yes, this one was written by a dentist to teach children all about cavities, plaque, and why they need to clean their mouths clean and healthy. It depicts oral hygiene as a battle between the naughty sugarbugs and all of us who are working to keep our mouths clean. It’s an adorable book with a storyline that children love – and it helps brushing teeth make sense to them, often for the first time!

  1. The Tooth Book: A Healthy Guide to Teeth and Gums, by Edward Miller

A book for older children, The Tooth Book is a foray into all things tooth-related, both those that you probably knew and those that you definitely didn’t. This book is full of scientific facts, odd stories about dentistry in the past, and much more. It is the perfect choice for kids who are old enough to know how to brush their teeth but might just need a little reminder why!


It’s often difficult to encourage children to foster a healthy oral care routine. Celebrate Mother Goose Day with books that will help you do just that!

National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day

The end of the month is approaching, and that means that it is almost National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day. As many of our patient's know, our team are all animal lovers and our office is pet friendly, so this is a day that is dear to us.

If you haven't met our Director of Greetings (D.o.G.), Sadie, feel free to drop by our office anytime to say hello!

Speaking of pets, if you have a beloved dog, cat or other furry friend in your home, you know that it’s just as important to take care of their teeth as it is to take care of your own. Making sure your pets have healthy teeth is vital to their overall health. This is the perfect week to review what you do to keep your pets’ teeth healthy and strong.

So, what do you need to do to improve your dog’s or cat’s oral hygiene?

Oral Hygiene for Dogs

When you look at your dog’s mouth, there are a few things you should look for to make sure your pooch is healthy. You should be able to see if your dog has any inflammation in his or her mouth. A healthy mouth for a dog means that all teeth are intact, not broken or cracked. Gums should be pink (or black in some breeds) and there should not be any signs of bleeding or redness. Your pup’s tongue should be moist and pink without any cuts, sores, or mottled spots. You should always call your veterinarian if you notice any lumps, cuts, inflammation, or gums that are pale or bleeding.

Of course, just checking your dog’s teeth isn’t enough to keep them healthy. You should also be giving them regular cleanings to help avoid dangerous plaque buildup and other problems. Ideally, you should be brushing your dog’s teeth every day, but if that is too overwhelming for either of you, three days a week can make a huge difference.

You can find special toothbrushes for dogs and even toothpaste that helps keep their mouths healthy. Of course, you should never use human toothpaste to brush a dog’s teeth, as it can make them extremely ill.

Oral Hygiene for Cats

Regular dental care is also important for your feline friends. But it’s no secret that cats aren’t exactly fans of being touched on their face or their mouth. The best way to tackle this issue is to start small. Give your cat dental treats and washes formulated for cats. When you think he or she is ready, you can start gently introducing them to the idea of actually brushing their teeth. You can also find special dental treats that are fortified with special enzymes. These enzymes help kill harmful bacteria in your cat’s mouth. If you are ever in doubt, just ask your veterinarian.

Of course, while at-home care is important, your pet also needs to get a professional cleaning once every few years. This takes place at your regular veterinary office under sedation. It might not be fun, but it’s the best way to make sure your furry friend is safe and healthy.

You might not always remember that pets need dental care just like humans do. What better time to remember then during National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day? While you’re picking up your new friend, pick up a toothbrush for them too! #woof

3 Ways to Spring Clean Your Dental Routine

Spring has sprung at last, and you are probably starting to think about spring cleaning your house. But did you know that you should also be “spring cleaning” your teeth? Now that winter is over, it’s time to be more productive and make some changes. That means it’s the perfect time to start up a new dental routine or improve your old one.

So, what should you be doing to freshen things up for spring?

Replace Your Toothbrush

Experts say that you should replace your toothbrush every three to six months. This is especially true if you have been sick. During the winter, you probably caught a cold or respiratory virus, so spring is the right time to toss that germy toothbrush. There are more reasons than one to do so, though. As bacteria accumulates on the brush and the bristles get bent, your toothbrush cleans less effectively. And you want to make sure your oral hygiene is top-notch.

While you are preparing to get a new toothbrush anyway, this might get the perfect time to think about buying an electric toothbrush. These drastically improve the efficiency of your brushing routine. In fact, some estimates say that if the average person brushes their teeth at a rate of 100 brushstrokes per minute, electric toothbrushes do about 300 times as much.

Evaluate Your Toothpaste

Are you using the right kind of toothpaste? It’s important to be sure. Many kinds of toothpaste that are advertised as ‘whitening’ won’t really fix your problem, but rather just lift a few surface stains. You need toothpaste that will really keep your teeth looking great while also fighting bacteria on your gumline.

Above all, make sure your toothpaste contains fluoride, the cavity-fighting compound that keeps teeth healthy and looking great. It’s one of the best ways to fight tooth decay. As for your other toothpaste needs, you can choose whether you’d like a whitening toothpaste, cavity protection, or toothpaste for sensitive teeth. But fluoride is non-negotiable when it comes to oral health.

Double-check Your Brushing Routine

It’s not just about the right toothbrush and toothpaste. The way you brush your teeth also makes an enormous difference in the state of your oral hygiene. Make sure you are brushing twice a day and flossing at least once — preferably in the evening, to remove all the food particles of the day before sleep.

But what’s the best way to actually brush your teeth?

First, make sure you’re brushing for at least two minutes. You can go longer if you would like! Brush in small circles, moving the toothbrush along your gumline to remove any stubborn bacteria. Of course, you should also brush your tongue, cheeks, and the roof of your mouth as well, as a lot of bacteria accumulate there too.

Spring is also the perfect time to schedule your regular dental cleaning. When the seasons change, it’s time to stop in to Victoria Dental to make sure your teeth are ready for summer!

4 Fun Easter Activities That Don’t Involve Sweets

4 Fun Easter Activities – That Don’t Involve Sweets

Easter is right around the corner, and there are many fun activities on the horizon. But if you have children, you might be dreading the inevitable barrage of candy that they will get during Easter activities. It’s true that many Easter celebrations can be hard on your teeth, but the good news is that finding alternatives to sweets doesn’t have to be boring. You can still have lots of fun without hurting your teeth. Here are four fun Easter activities that will provide tons of fun without putting your oral health at risk!

  1. Potato Sack Race

At your next Easter get-together, organize a potato sack race for all the kids (or adults) to enjoy. Let them hop along to the finish line, just like the Easter bunny himself. If you want to add a little bit of extra fun, you can provide bunny ears for everyone to wear while they take part in the race. You can even add a personal touch by customizing the sacks with fun springtime colours or whatever else you would like. It may not involve sweets, but it is still a lot of fun that every child at your event will enjoy.

  1. Cascarones

Cascarones are a fun Easter tradition from Mexico. These are an alternative to Easter eggs, making them a great, colourful egg tradition that is not filled with jelly beans, M&Ms, and other cavity-making sweets. But they are not just pretty eggs — they’re also a sneaky Easter game. These colourful eggs are hollowed out and then filled with confetti. What’s the point of this all? To surprise your friends and family when they’re not expecting it and crack the eggs on their head, showering them in colourful confetti. It’s all the fun without any of the sugar.

  1. Painting Ukrainian Easter Eggs

This Easter tradition is a great way to teach your children about other cultures around the world. This is a fun activity that is unlike any other experience of dying Easter eggs. First, use hot wax to drip designs on the eggs and a special stick to write words or move the wax around in patterns. Then dip the egg into regular Easter egg dye. You will be amazed to see the hidden patterns that emerge! It is also a fun opportunity to learn some words in Ukrainian, like “pysanky” (Easter eggs) and “kistka” (special pen tool).

  1. Alternative Easter Egg Hunts 

Easter eggs don’t have to be filled with candy! You can still put on fun, sugar-free Easter egg hunts with eggs full of fun toys, games, or scavenger hunt clues. Small egg hunters will have a blast looking for treasures… even if they aren’t sweet ones. There are many ideas online if you get stumped. Don’t hesitate to plan an all-out Easter bash even if you don’t want to provide candy. There are lots of fun options you can use to make the day fun and special.
