October is National Dental Hygiene Month
The American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) in cooperation with Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company, manufacturer of Orbit gum, has organized National Dental Hygiene Month (NDHM). NDHM provides consumer information about oral disease prevention including a Spanish and English Radio Media Tour and 4 new Spanish translated fact sheets. Focusing on community service and the day-to-day efforts of dental hygienists nationwide is what NDHM is all about!
This year’s theme, “Keep them healthy. Keep them clean.”stresses easy ways for people to incorporate a simple oral health regimen into an active and busy life in order to maintain optimal oral health.
Through the NDHM program, ADHA continues to promote increasing the public’s awareness about the importance of preventive services in maintaining good oral hygiene and to encourage others to develop and continue with a daily oral health routine.
