We stand over our bathroom sink and rarely give caring for our teeth a second though. A toothbrush and toothpaste are only as far away as the local supermarket for most of us. July 15 is National Give Something Away Day. On this day, many will be donating clothes, food, and other household items. Don’t forget to donate oral hygiene products like toothbrushes, floss, toothpaste and mouth rinse. These essential items are sure to put a smile on someone’s face that is struggling to keep products needed to keep up with a proper home care routine.
Palm Harbor Premier Dental team loves random acts of kindness and helping each other in the community. This day is the perfect opportunity for us to put toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste in the hands of people having a difficult time acquiring dental care necessities. Health concerns from not maintaining proper dental hygiene go far beyond cavities. Dental health has been linked to heart health and diseases including AIDS and hepatitis can be passed from one person to another by sharing toothbrushes. This is why it is so important for everyone to have access to their own individual toothbrushes.
Remember, as you lend a hand and give something away on July 15, stay on top of your own oral health and make sure to stay current with your own dental checkups and cleanings. Everyone is recommended to have a dental exam and professional cleaning every 6 months for prevention and early detection. Give us a call at (727) 349-3615. The Palm Harbor Premier Dental team of caring professionals will set up an appointment that works with your schedule. We look forward to hearing from you!
Take what you need, give what you can!
