April 2016: Dental Tips, eNews & More!



 
It's finally April, and although we've enjoyed a mild winter, I'm sure we can all really appreciate that warmer weather is here. Speaking of appreciation, this month we celebrate National Dental Hygienist Week (April 9-15), giving us the opportunity to show how much we appreciate the people who take such good care of our smiles.

Because April is both Oral Health Month and Oral Cancer Awareness month, our featured article talks about the oral cancer warning signs to look out for and the importance of regular oral cancer screenings. If it's been a while since your last checkup, contact our office to book a screening.
