You can find us in Mediaplanet’s Oral Health campaign, out today! America spends roughly $124 billion a year on dental care, not to mention the amount spent on oral health-related illness. But that number could be greatly reduced if the right preventive measures and treatments were put in place. In the campaign, we call attention to the individuals, organizations, and trends that are contributing to a healthier, more insured world. The campaign was distributed through USA TODAY on March 31, 2020 and is published online.
