Oral Health Awareness Month
Posted by Paul on 8/1/2014 8:38:00 AM
Welcome to August. It is now officially Oral Health Awareness Month for Missouri. This designation is a result of House Concurrent Resolution 25 that passed during the recent legislative session. The resolution was sponsored by Representative Donna Lichtenegger of Cape Girardeau. Rep. Lichtenegger is also a RDH and champions oral health in many ways. You can read the official resolution here
The dental community certainly knows the value of prevention and that begins with awareness. What can you do this month to increase awareness where you practice? The MDA will post oral health tips through the month on the MDA Facebook page. There will also be links to MDA's Your Mouth is Talking Campaign and ADA's MouthHealthy,org. Both of these offer great education on oral health habits.
Here's a month focused on your profession. Make the most of it!
