Cambrian College's Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students are working to improve oral health awareness and outcomes in Greater Sudbury as part of National Oral Health Month and National Dental Hygienists Week with their annual 'Walk for a Smile' initiative.
As part of their programs, Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students complete placements and conduct other oral health promotion projects in a variety of community settings. These experiences help them to appreciate the health issues that can arise without regular preventative oral care, and have a positive effect on their sense of social responsibility.
The proceeds will go towards the purchase of oral hygiene products such as toothpaste and toothbrushes, and to support access to dental services for individuals experiencing financial challenges in our community.
This year our goal is to raise over $7,500.00 for this advocacy effort.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
