Science Café "Oral Health Disparities and General Health: Taking Care of Your Teeth Helps Take Care of You" April 14

04-14-20156:00 PM  - 7:15 PM

We tend to take our teeth and smiles for granted. However, millions of Americans still experience a disproportionate burden from common oral diseases. A majority of these issues are preventable with access to fluoridated water, regular dental visits, and sustainable home care that includes cleaning the teeth. Common dental diseases, such as dental caries (cavities) and gum disease, impact general health and wellbeing and lead to pain and huge financial burdens for individuals and society. Recent evidence also demonstrates that there is an association between common dental diseases and other health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Join us on April 14, and learn how state sponsored programs can help improve oral health.
