March 20 is World Oral Health Day, and this year the campaign is all about Living Mouth Smart.

How do you Live Mouth Smart?

Well, basically you need to practice good oral hygiene, avoid risk factors such as smoking and drinking too much alcohol, and visit your dentist for regular dental examinations.

Good oral health has many benefits. It is not just about having a beautiful smile – your oral health can have a big impact on your overall health.

Gum disease can increase your risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, oral cancer, pancreatic cancer and pneumonia.

So, book an appointment with your dentist today to check how good your oral health is.

We are offering a free dental examination to all new Medcare patients. Medcare members get yearly examinations for free. Just call us on 966 860 258 to book an appointment, or fill in the form on the right and we will get back to you.
