"We are proud to partner with such excellent community organizations in our celebration of Dental Hygiene Month. It is critical to start proper dental care early in life, and we hope that our visits will give parents and children the information and resources to begin proper care," said Judy Gelenas, Director, St. Christopher's Foundation for Children Ronald McDonald Care Mobile.

The Philadelphia Dental Hygienists' Association and the New Jersey Dental Hygienists' Association are proud partners in this tour. 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."
