Crest Kid

My morning regimen (at the moment):

  1. Floss with Crest Glide
  2. More like tape than floss, it’s also got some kind of whitening or Scope in it.

  3. Rinse with Crest Pro-Health
  4. No alcohol burn. Yum!

  5. Brush with Crest Whitening Plus Scope Extreme Mint Explosion
  6. A mouthful to say or type but not to use. Hands down my favorite toothpaste of the last decade.

I can still remember the alligator-handled toothbrush I got during one of my first trips to the dentist. It had a bold red-and-blue Crest logo embossed near the alligator’s tail and his open mouth produced the remainder of the handle and lead to the bristled head.

I’m also reminded of those old Izod/Lacoste polo shirts my grandfather always wore, the ones with the Crocodile logo that stood in front of the left breast pocket (where he kept his packet of cigarettes). Maybe the smoking and the lizard connection led me to a life of good oral hygiene?

Whatever the case, I’m still a Crest kid.
