Fall for Smiles: Upcoming Webinar Shows How To Get Involved

Posted on October 9, 2013

CHICAGO, August 13, 2013 — In preparation for its upcoming Fall for Smiles® campaign, Oral Health 

America (OHA) is hosting a webinar for dental professionals and others in the dental industry to 

introduce participants to the campaign and walk them through campaign collateral. The webinar, which 

is generously sponsored by DentaQuest, will take place Aug. 21 at noon CDT.


“DentaQuest is proud to sponsor Oral Health America’s Fall for Smiles communication campaign," said 

Steven J. Pollock, DentaQuest Chief Operating Officer. "The webinar is a great opportunity for those in 

the dental industry to become familiar with the campaign and all the materials OHA provides to help 

them participate. We hope it encourages even greater participation in Fall for Smiles this year; it is an 

initiative DentaQuest has supported since its inception.”


In addition to talking about the campaign's focus of encouraging Americans to maintain good oral health 

through brushing and flossing, regular dental visits, healthy eating, and avoiding tobacco, the webinar 

will go over all campaign materials in detail. These materials include press releases, a letter to the 

editor, social media guide, and activities dental professionals can do with their patients. By the end of 

the webinar, participants will have a clear understanding of the campaign's focus and how they can best 

utilize campaign materials to participate in Fall for Smiles.


The webinar will also include a presentation about the DentaQuest Institute’s Online Learning Center. 

The Online Learning Center engages dental professionals nationwide by allowing them to earn certified 

education units (CEUs) for completing learning modules on prevention and diseases management and 

the effective management of safety new dental programs. Those interested in participating in the 

webinar can visit the Fall for Smiles webpage at www.oralhealthamerica.org/fallforsmiles to register.

Lastly, DentaQuest President & CEO, Fay Donohue, will participate in OHA’s Fall for Smiles advocacy day
