Rochester Hills Dental believes oral health is an important part of maintaining good overall health and is proud to participate in Oral Health America’s Fall for Smiles campaign to spread the message of the importance of a healthy smile.
The annual Fall for Smiles campaign encourages Americans to keep a healthy mouth through daily brushing and flossing, regular dental visits, a healthy diet and avoiding tobacco products. With Americans most likely to skip or delay dental visits due to finances or lack of insurance coverage, the message of Fall for Smiles is more important than ever. To spread the message, Rochester Hills Dental is educating all our patients and encouraging them to spread the message to their friends and family members as well. In addition, Dr. Ohlsson spread the message when he participated in the “Back-to-School Bonanza” in which he was able to educated numerous children and families on the importance of oral hygiene as well as how to properly brush and floss their teeth.
“We’re excited to participate in this year’s Fall for Smiles campaign by educating people in our community about the importance of a healthy smile,” said Dr. Ohlsson. “We hope that by emphasizing taking care of your teeth now, we can help our community’s residents prevent more serious oral health problems later.”
The campaign’s webpage, www.oralhealthamerica.org/fallforsmiles, contains several ways that families can participate as well, from tip sheets to coloring activities and experiments to do with kids. Rochester Hills Dental encourages everyone to Fall for Smiles this September and October so Americans of all ages have the healthiest mouths possible. Remember to make an appointment for your regular checkup today!
