CHICAGO, September 9 — According to a recent survey commissioned by Oral Health America (OHA) and conducted by Harris Poll, low income older adults have multiple risk factors when it comes to oral health, including being less likely to do daily care activities such as brushing and being less likely to live near an affordable grocery store. OHA is working to fight these troubling statistics through this year’s Fall for Smiles campaign, which encourages all Americans to care for their mouths through daily brushing, flossing and rinsing, regular dental visits, eating a healthy diet and avoiding tobacco.
To help all Americans get involved in the campaign, OHA has a promotional guide available to download for free on the Fall for Smiles webpage, oralhealthamerica.org/fallforsmiles. The guide, sponsored by Midmark, includes web banners, a template press release, sample newsletter articles and language that can be used on social media. In addition, campaign information can also be shared directly to Twitter and Facebook via the Fall for Smiles webpage.
“Midmark is pleased to support the Fall for Smiles initiative for the fifth consecutive year. Through the partnership with Oral Heath America and other impactful organizations, Midmark is excited about this wonderful opportunity to further education on the importance of developing healthy dental habits,” said Eric Shirley, VP and General Manager for Midmark Corporation.
