Do you floss? What do you tell your dental hygentist.   One-fourth of Americans ‘lie’ to their dentists about flossing. Flossing one’s teeth, according to a Harris Poll survey, is in some cases a less desirable activity than listening to the sound of nails on a chalkboard or to small children crying on a bus or plane. 36% say they would rather do an unpleasant activity like cleaning the toilet or working on their taxes than floss.  http://goo.gl/fjJDOB
