"We are proud to partner with such excellent community organizations in our celebration of Dental Hygiene Month.

Through their generous donations of supplies, the St. Christopher's Foundation for Children Ronald McDonald Care Mobile will be able to provide children with take home dental supplies in addition to the treatment they receive.

National Dental Hygiene Month is sponsored annually by the American Dental Hygienists' Association (ADHA). The month is set aside to recognize the importance of proper oral hygiene. Each October, a specific theme is chosen to focus the effort, and the 2007 theme is "A Healthy Smile Lasts a Lifetime."
