Each August marks Oral Health week, and it is an excellent opportunity for people to consider their oral health more closely. However, here at Complete Dental, we know oral health is crucially important year-round! While we do think about oral health at this time of year, many of our dental health initiatives in the local community take place throughout the year.
Our Involvement with the Local Community
We love giving back to the community that supports us, and routinely visit child-care centres and hold educational sessions with the kids locally. We are currently planning visits to the senior community to discuss how ageing can impact dental health and strategies to maintain excellent oral health no matter your age. Our dedicated dental team has also signed up to volunteer with the ADA, providing essential dental care to those in our community who cannot currently access dental treatment.
Above all, we try to encourage our patients to see us regularly so we can monitor their oral health. Oral health tracking is critically important as most dental problems are preventable, and when detected early, can often be treated easily and cost-effectively. Also, we are continually working to raise awareness of the close connection between dental disease and other systemic health problems. When you look after your teeth, it helps to protect your overall health too, and that is something to smile about year-round.
