You’ve probably heard that dental plaque is the enemy of a healthy smile. But what is it, exactly?

Watch this video from the American Dental Association to learn more about plaque. Then, partner with Bell Dental Group in Cincinnati, OH to make sure it doesn’t compromise the health of your smile! We offer high-quality general dentistry, as well as deep cleaning procedures, to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
