Survey report on dental hygiene

This report presents the results of a survey on people’s dental hygiene. The goal of the survey was to determine what the people’ habits about dental hygiene all over the world are. Another goal was for my personal interest ; I wanted to know this information to increase my knowledge in connection with my future patient.

Methodology
The survey contained 10 questions, including 7 multiple-choice questions and 3 yes/no questions. If the answer wasn’t included in the mentioned choices, the respondent could explain his other answer. A sample of 22 people answered the survey questions. The sample consisted of people living everywhere in the world, but the major part of the respondents were students of College Édouard-Montpetit. The data was collected by our blog on the http://www.englishcedblog.blogspot.com/.

Results
The responses show that almost 74 per cent of people brush their teeth 2 times a day. About 55 per cent of people visit the hygienist or dentist 2 times a year. Moreover, 96 per cent of people didn’t use bleaching treatments. Nearly 32 per cent of the respondents have never had orthodontic treatments. Half of the people think that a good brushing takes 2 minutes, and more than 57 per cent think that you should brush your teeth 20 minutes after you eat. Only 19 per cent of the people have somebody in the family who have oral problems. There is an equality: approximately 24 per cent of the people never use their dental floss, or use it each day. Finally, 82 per cent trust their dental center, and half of them live in Longueuil.

Analysis
The results demonstrate that 77,3% of people brush their teeth 2 times a day. To do it well, it would be necessary to brush teeth after each time that we eat something, especially if it contains sugar. Then, we can note that more than half of the people visit their dentist 2 times per year, which is perfect. This same percentage believes that a good brushing takes 2 minutes and it’s not completely false: we recommend between 3 and 5 minutes, but if you have the right method, it can be enough. In fact, as nearly 60% of the people answered, you should brush your teeth 20 minutes or less after eaten. Moreover, I noticed that 24 % of the people who answered my survey said that they never use dental floss. You should use dental floss 1 time a day, preferably before sleeping.

Finally, for the majority of the questions, I think that people’s habits are better than I believed. However, it’s really encouraging for me to know that so many people take care of their oral health. I was very surprised to know that the 2 Europeans who answered my survey said that they don’t use dental floss. I was also surprised to know that so many people brush their teeth more than 1 time a day. I’m happy to know that people attach such a great importance to the most visible place on their face.

The perfect countryside!

My town : L'ASSOMPTION


When I look out my window, I see what is true nature. Air is pure, trees are very big and i feel good. According to me, l'Assomption is the perfect model of countryside.
In spite of its respect of the past, its downtown area has become a crossroads of arts where regional vocations like theatres, coffees, restaurents, schools and many others which allow the invited and local artists to do their work in front of the citizens. In L'Assomption, people are very friendly and sociable. This city gives me a very strong feeling of membership and safety.
Finally, because of its beautiful forests and its peaceful environment, this town is definitely for me the best place to live.
