Have you been to the dentist this year? Thousands of people in Richmond have not.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly one-third of all adults in the United States have untreated tooth decay, and one in seven adults aged 35 to 44 years old has periodontal (gum) disease.
These dental issues can have significant impacts on a persons health and well being.
Four years ago, the VHCF awarded CrossOver a grant that expanded our Dental Program by bringing additional hygienists to our team.
This has greatly increased the number of patients receiving dental hygiene services at our clinics. Hygiene visits are just one part of patients' treatment plans, and the first step toward keeping their oral health on track.
Thank you Virginia Health Care Foundation for helping to put smiles on our patients' faces.
