Gift from the Heart 2012
On Sunday February12,2012 the Integrative Health Group-Dental Hygiene Department provided oral health screening, dental plaque microscopy, free tooth brush and other oral health care products. We screened over thirty individuals and all were educated on the relationship of oral health and general health. Some individuals were totally unaware of elevated blood pressure levels since they had not gone for regular annual with their physicians. Some who are smokers were offered supportive techniques to stop smoking.
Dental Hygienist as are primary Oral health practitioners is in a very unique position to help their clients with lifestyle management issues.
We look forward to doing this again next year.
