Dental and Eye Care

Did You Know?

  • Good oral and dental hygiene can help prevent bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease -- and can help you keep your teeth as you get older.
  • An unhealthy mouth, especially if you have gum disease, may increase your risk of serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, poorly-controlled diabetes and preterm labor.
  • An comprehensive eye exam will help to detect any eye problems or diseases at their early stages when they're most treatable. A vision screening and eye exam are NOT the same thing!

What Can I Try?

  • Visit a dentist every six months for a cleaning and/or exam.

  • See your eye doctor yearly for a comprehensive exam.
