Cambrian College's Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students are working to improve oral health awareness and outcomes in Greater Sudbury as part of National Oral Health Month and National Dental Hygienists Week, with their annual 'Walk for a Smile' initiative.
The student-led initiative raises much needed funds for community agencies in the Greater City of Sudbury that provide oral care products and services for clients who are in need.
As part of their programs, students complete placements and conduct other oral health promotion projects in a variety of community settings. These experiences help them to appreciate the health issues that can arise without regular preventative oral care, and have a positive effect on their sense of social responsibility and advocacy.
This fundraiser allows the programs to give back to those who are less fortunate. The proceeds will go toward the purchase of toothpaste, toothbrushes,other oral hygiene devices, as well as dental supplies/equipment, and/or cash donations for dental services for the less advantaged.
Please give today!
