Pacific Dental Services celebrates World Oral Health Day: 3 highlights

Pacific Dental Services celebrated World Oral Health Day March 20. This year's theme was "Think Mouth Think Health."

Here are three highlights:

1. World Oral Health Day is the largest oral health global awareness campaign, according to Pacific Dental Services. Every year, the event focuses on a theme and reaches out to the public, oral health professionals and policy makers.

2. A Pacific Dental Services-supported practice in Highlands Ranch, Colo., is cultivating a community of physicians to encourage patients to gain more knowledge ton The Mouth-Body Connection™. 

3. Ashley Spooner, DDS, of Falcon Park Dental Group in Highlands Ranch, said, "We're not just looking at the patient's mouth. We look at their blood pressure, medications, lifestyle, concerns for bad breath, bleeding gums and whether they have any pain. Patients often have no symptoms of infection, but when we see deeper probing depths, bone loss on radiographs, and observe bleeding gums, we find infection. Our practice is committed to treating whole-body health."
