Advanced Dental Care + Project Independence

Advanced Dental Care + Project IndependenceProject Independence

Serving the needs of Orange County Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Throughout the year, Advanced Dental Care takes pride in supporting and bringing awareness to local organizations doing AMAZING things in our communities.  We learned about Project Independence through our fellow Costa Mesa Chamber of Commerce friend and Project Independence’s Director of Development, Todd Eckert!  Todd became a patient of Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson’s and over time we got the pleasure of learning more about him and his organization.

Project Independence (PI) is a nonprofit organization founded right here in Orange County, CA in 1977!  The organization is based just down the road from us in Costa Mesa.  Project Indepedence focuses on helping people with developmental disabilities live independent and productive lives by securing jobs and housing for the clients.  The Core Programs include:


Are you brushing too hard

February 24, 2016

Brushing our teeth at least two minutes, twice a day is one of the most effective methods for maintaining good oral health in between visits to the dentist.  Proper brushing technique is equally important to ensure effectiveness and to prevent any damage to the enamel and gums.

Brushing too hard can lead to:

  • Sensitivity
  • Gum recession
  • Worn Enamel

  • Red, swollen gums

How to prevent brushing too hard?

If you use a manual toothbrush, we highly suggest you use a soft-bristled toothbrush.   Even better, we offer two fantastic toothbrushes at Advanced Dental Care: Sonicare and Oral-B.  Our RDH Lisa Thurm prefers the Oral B Professional 5000.  The round toothbrush head allows for easy access to all surfaces of the tooth and the rotating bristles work effectively to remove plaque and tartar.
