    Dr. Isabel Kelly: Hello! My name is Dr. Isabel Kelly and I am general practicing dentist in McLean, Virginia. I on my own practice where I see pediatric, adult and entire families and my primary focus is on cosmetic and general dentistry. We are going to talk about today flossing techniques and there is actually different flosses out there. There is wax and un-wax floss, I prefer the wax floss over the un-wax floss because Wax floss shreds less easily and there is also the dental tape and the dental tape is very good for people who have teeth that are very close together. Since I havent really looked this patients teeth, I assume they are very close together and this is just the easiest one to use. So, we are going to use the dental tape today to demonstrate. So lets get started.
