Dental hygiene is extremely important. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, and it can go a long way in making a good or bad first impression. People tend to associate many other positive qualities with healthy teeth, which can make many facets of life much easier. Unfortunately, going to the dentist can be quite expensive at times, depending on your needs. Many parents do not have the means to give their children, let alone themselves the proper dental care they need. Fortunately for them, this Saturday, September 17th, Vienna Smiles will be hosting the Dentistry From The Heart event with a dentist from Vienna, VA. This is an event intended to provide free dental care to those most in need.
Dentistry From The Heart’s Purpose
The goal of Dentistry From The heart is to provide free dental care to those in need. Every year, over 100 million Americans miss going to the dentist because they cannot afford it. A lack of dental care can lead to a wide array of problems. Childrens’ grades frequently suffer in school because of bullying and teasing due to bad teeth. Employers often tend to not hire people with unhealthy teeth for fear of it being off-putting to potential customers. Along with the social stigma, a lack of oral hygiene has been shown to lead to higher rates of diabetes and heart disease in adults. It is difficult to eat hearty, fibrous fruits and vegetables when your teeth are compromised. Many times a simple cleaning is all that is needed to prevent a small problem from becoming a large, agonizing one. Many people cope with pain in their teeth every day and have no way of getting relief. We here at Vienna Smiles hope this event will empower both the spirit and well-being of our community. We’re hoping a bright smile can help people show more than just healthy teeth to the world.
