To ensure the safety of our staff and clients the Children’s Preventive Dental Clinic will be open for clients with appointments beginning the week of September 14.

Dental health is an important part of overall health. Dental problems and diseases such as cavities, gum disease and oral cancer can be associated with other health problems. Brushing and flossing every day and visiting your dentist and dental hygienist regularly are important to your overall health.
