Supporting Your Practice

Updated Oasis Patient Resource: Think you know everything about proper brushing and flossing techniques?


The Oasis Patient Resource is a series of tools that help dentists explain basic dental concepts and procedures to their patients. This video and additional materials are provided to dentists to use for patient information. If you are interested in using the video in your own practice, please email us at oasisdiscussions@cda-adc.ca and we will gladly provide you with the original Powerpoint presentation as well as the video file. You will then be able to customize it with your own logo and office information.
