|Improving someone's oral health is one of the best things you can do. Many people can't afford to visit us regularly for lack of dental insurance. This situation affects mostly seniors who are retired and lost their coverage, as well as those who are unemployed.
In the United States, millions of people have at least one missing tooth, and the statistics for periodontal disease are staggering and continue to rise. Taking care of someone, even in a small way, can help a person avoid serious dental health problems in their future.
Oral Health Gifts
If you are inclined to share a gift to help someone's oral health, here are some excellent suggestions.
A supply of toothpaste that contains fluoride and anti-cavity ingredients can also help someone in need. Our most generous donors have covered cleanings and some treatments needed by patients who can't afford to pay for them. We thank you for all the gifts.
