National Dental Hygiene Month
Posted: October 2, 2009
There are different causes celebrated in October, and one of them is National Dental Hygiene Month. This month, according to the American Dental Hygienists' Association, public awareness will be increased so people will know the relationship between oral health and their overall health. This is also a good time to educate families on issues affecting their oral health. ADHA emphasizes the important of maintaining proper oral hygiene, starting early every day, in order to prevent gum disease, cavities, and bad breath. Every week in October will be designated to a different aspect of oral hygiene, everything from dental hygienists to community service.
