A local dentist has today been urged to stop being so obsessed with her patients lack of interest in flossing a cord of thin filaments between their teeth to remove food and dental plaque from areas a toothbrush is unable to reach.
Dr Ava Whinge has today tee’d off on yet another innocent citizen who doesn’t share her fetishisation with the unorthodox style of teeth cleaning.
“You know flossing is just as important as brushing, right?” she says.
“You need to do it eight times a day. Ten times a day if you drink anything other than water”
A recent report by the Australian Flossing Lobby, more commonly known as the Teeth Police, over 85% of Australian dentists are forced to whinge about a patient’s lack of flossing each day.
“It’s not good enough” says AFL spokesperson Ginger Vytuz.
“When are people going to learn that it doesn’t matter if your toothbrush has a space-age aerodynamic design and rubber tassels. You need to floss!”
However, the general public continues to disagree with this claim, with some even stating that the concept of ‘flossing’ is just a conspiracy created by Big Dental, to convince people to buy more supplies from the teeth hygiene duopoly of Colgate and Listerine.
Today, at the Betoota Heights dental surgery, local bloke Graham is one of these skeptics.
He says Dr Whinge needs to stop being so obsessed with flossing. This comes after getting an absolutely rinsing down, both metaphorical and physical, while siting in the chair today.
“Flossing is never going to be a thing. I’m not falling for this shit” he says.
“They already convinced as we needed mouth wash, not for our breathes but for plaque”
“Now they are trying to make flossing a thing. It’s not a thing. Get over it”
