In the News: Here’s How Often You Should Change Your Toothbrush

Dr. Umang Patel offers advice on toothbrush hygiene
Dr. Umang Patel

Dr. Umang Patel was recently featured in a Bustle.com article, “Here’s How Often You Should Change Your Toothbrush,” by Carolyn Steber.

The article details the importance of proper toothbrush hygiene, which can prevent the growth of bacteria and mold, and how to make your toothbrush last longer.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Dr. Umang Patel, a dentist based in Chicago, Illinois, recommends thoroughly rinsing the bristles and, if you have an electric toothbrush, detaching the wand and cleaning it thoroughly after each use.

“Saliva and toothpaste can get stuck underneath where the brush connects with the wand and can be a cesspool of germs and bacteria, which can lead to getting sick,” he tells Bustle.

Check out the full article for more advice from Dr. Patel.

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
