We’re proud to partner with Mediaplanet for its Oral Health campaign! The pandemic has interrupted our routines, and caused many people to delay dental care and develop poor oral hygiene habits. This campaign will educate readers about the dangers of neglecting proper care and reassure people who have been hesitant to visit the dentist’s office. Learn more by reading the campaign in USA Today and online by using the links below.
