Poor oral health has been linked to chronic conditions like diabetes, pregnancy, and heart health. Painful cavities and visible oral disease also can impact school attendance, nutrition, employment opportunities, self-esteem and how others perceive you.
Due to COVID-19, the dental team will prescreen and take temperature the day of the examination. The dentist and team may provide one or more of the following: examination, fluoride varnish, sealants, x-rays, simple extraction, temporary filling, and written referral. Everyone deserves good oral and overall health.
