Well, i dont really know, is it preference?

I personally do it in this order..

Floss, Gargle, Brush, and Mouthwash..

Sometimes, Floss, Pre-Brush Rinse, Brush, and Mouthwash.

My dentist tells me that Option B is the best – I believe her exact words were “you wouldn’t mop the floor before you sweep, so why would you brush before you floss?” I never thought about it before, but it makes sense!

heh… my dentist suggested flossing after brushing so as to help force some of the toothpaste up in between the teeth.
