How do you figure out what’s wrong with your tooth when it hurts (or anything else for that matter)? Do you instantly scour through our collection of blogs, check medical sites, and post questions to message boards? While the Internet offers a wealth of information – often-reliable information, such as from our own site – many sites are full of misinformation. In addition, while we provide you with factual details, there’s a whole world of professional knowledge that we can only put to good use if we see you in person. Let’s see if you’re relying too much on the Internet for your oral health with a quick quiz.
