Health Tip of the Day

Dental Visits Important

Twice-yearly dental visits are recommended to prevent oral health problems. But roughly 65 percent of American adults don't have even one yearly dental appointment. Because of this, 33 percent of all Americans have untreated tooth decay and 48 percent have gum disease, according to the Academy of General Dentistry.
