On April 28th, Danville Dental Associates reached out to the community to support our area students with a project called “Smile for Schools”. Patients were offered at-home bleaching kits regularly valued at $399, for a $100 donation to be given to the patient’s designated school of choice. These included public or private schools; primary, middle or high schools; and special needs schools in Danville City and Pittsylvania County areas.

The desire to have a perfect smile is not something that is selective to adulthood. Children are just as aware of their flaws and want to make improvements, but they don’t want to endure the burden of wearing bulky metal braces. This is one of the reasons that Invisalign has become so popular, but your dentist of Danville warns that this may not be the best alternative for children between the ages of 7 and 11, because they have not gotten their permanent teeth.

Such is the case with your oral health, as it serves as a window into the rest of your structure. One very vital organ that can be affected by your dental wellness is your heart.
