If you aren't going to see a dentist every six months, well, I'm not going to blather on to you about HOW HORRIBLE YOU ARE because I'm not your mother. You should obviously know how important oral hygiene is by now, so I won't go on. What's that you say? You've got no insurance? I hear you. Oh, but wait. Here's a thought. Use Groupon or Living Social or sites like those ones to find dentist deals. You can find deals on general cleanings (ie. check-ups) so often, it's a joke. And these are crazy deals, usually for $50 and less. You now have no excuse not to go. Seriously, the elderly version of you will thank me when you have glorious teeth well into your hundreds.
