Although toothbrushing is the most decisive factor in preventing oral disease, only a few patients and dental professionals know how to brush perfectly. After earlier working as a dental technician and also as a dancer, Dr Fabio Angelini qualified as a dental hygienist and is now teaching internationally as an instructor in CURADEN’s iTOP programme. Individually trained oral prophylaxis (iTOP) is an interactive programme that teaches dental students and professionals perfect oral hygiene habits, so that they, in turn, can train their patients to achieve oral health that will last a lifetime.
