Home Care & Cleaning: Perfect your home care -- electric brush and waterpik. Get a 2nd cleaning, but request no examination from the DR. -- this will save you about $45. If you can afford the exam as well, then even better. Ask for a shower gift of a gift certificate for a cleaning at your Dentist's office. Good Luck with all.
