top picks from a dental assistant

Tracy and her son Ryder, age 2.

If you’ve ever wondered what a dental assistant uses at home, we’ve got the skinny. Johnson Dentistry dental assistant and mom, Tracy Amundson, shares a list of her can’t-live-without-items for both she and her family below.
• Sonicare Flexcare toothbrush (she swears by it)
• Sunstar GUM Soft-picks, they’re flexible and tapered to fit even the smallest spaces.
• We always use Listerine after we brush and floss for a 30 second swish (the kids favorite flavor is orange)
• My kids (ages 15, 13, & 2) all use Sonicare’s electric brush for kids.
