I don't see the point in brushing before a meal. I brush once after I eat breakfast, and at night, before I go to bed. I also floss before I brush in the evening. Works for me. I do brush before doctor / dentist appts, of course. Does this person do both? Before and after? Seems a Obsessive-compulsive to me. I have OCD, so I understand.

I have but normally I do it after a meal. I guess it depends on my mood mostly. I guess some people have a different style than others. I am not sure there is anything wrong with it, but to me it does not make too much sense because you should after the meal to get rid of the plaque from food particles. But I guess if you like to do it before and after I am not sure it would hurt any either. Nice post and happy mylotting to you.
