I wrote this for Waterpik. The campaign appears on the Waterpik website. I interviewed each dental hygienist over a two week period. I loved this assignment because each dental hygienist was passionate about his or her work and eager to educate. Each conversation lasted one hour. I learned a lot and wanted to share the info with you.
