If you are due (or overdue) for a dental appointment, then April is a great time to plan your next visit. Here are three good reasons to come to our office this month or in the near future.
To Fight Oral Cancer
April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, around 54,000 people will be diagnosed with this condition this year. Early detection makes a big difference in treating this disease, too. To help, we can conduct an oral cancer screening when you visit us for a dental exam.
To Support the Athletes in Your Family
April also is National Facial Protection Month. For people who play sports, not wearing a mouthguard makes you 60 times more likely to suffer a dental injury, according to the American Dental Association. For your protection, we can make a custom-fitted athletic mouthguard at our office.
To Get to Know Us
Along with great oral care, we are proud to say we have a team of great people. And there’s no better time to celebrate that than National Dental Hygienists Week (April 4-10).
