The use of social media is key to get results. I use social media to inform people in my country on the importance of good oral hygiene.
Consequently, I have been using my social media page(Instagram) to post daily dental posts to enlighten the citizens of my country(Ghana) on the need to take care of their oral health and also visit the dentist every 6 months for routine dental check up. The feedback i have gotten has been awesome. People in my country now see the importance of setting oral hygiene goals and visiting the dentist. There is also increased motivation when patients come to my clinic and I offer them free oral care products such as dental floss, toohbrushes and tongue scrapers.
