Why Good Oral Health Matters For Your Employees’ Health

Posted by Seraine Page on Thu, Apr, 16, 2020

How often do you or your employees give oral health a thought?

Since most dental offices are only accepting emergency visits right now, it’s of the utmost importance to maintain oral health — now and in the future.
