WSJournal: Most People Should Visit Dentist Twice Per Year.
Updated: Sep 29, 2020
The Wall Street Journal (12/30, Chen, Subscription Publication) considers the frequency with which people should visit the dentist. Citing Dr. Edmond R. Hewlett, a professor of dentistry at the University of California, Los Angeles, the Journal reports that while a small number of people can get away with less than the recommended twice-per-year dental visits, others will in fact need to visit the dentist more than two times per year. Dr. Hewlett said that the recommendation was envisioned with an average person in mind, meaning middle-aged people who don’t smoke and who brush their teeth twice per day.
