Oral wellbeing is necessary for a healthier body and quality of life. As part of the health care service, the certified nurse assistant’s role is to ensure the oral health of the patients. Part of it is brushing their teeth. Providing mouth care procedure differs from state to state. For now, we are going to follow the Arizona Board of Nursing Requirements in brushing the teeth. Always remember to follow your own state procedure when doing this.
