Most people are aware of the threat of tooth decay and know to keep their teeth clean to prevent cavities. Gum disease, on the other hand, may not be as well-known. That is why February was made Gum Disease Awareness Month – to help spread the word about the disease and lower the number of patients affected by it. At Strickland Family Dentistry, we want to get as many people in Sarasota, FL involved with the seventh anniversary of this occasion as possible. Here are a few ideas on how to spread the word.
FightGumDisease.com is a great resource for educating the general public on what gum disease is, how it affects the body, and treatment options. The website updates regularly, so be sure to follow them through their social media pages to stay up to date on new content and keep yourself informed.
Help educate those close to you by sharing what you’ve learned on your website and/or social channels. Whether it’s content from FightGumDisease.com or articles and blogs from other reputable sources, spreading the word about gum disease in Sarasota can help keep more people’s gums healthy.
Gum Disease Awareness Month is recognized in 49 U.S. states and several territories, but there are always more people who can be informed on this threatening disease. Reach out to your local government officials to get them involved and further your reach and raise awareness in your community.
You can be sure that your dentists at Strickland Family Dentistry will also be staying active during the month of February for Gum Disease Awareness Month. Be on the lookout for blogs on our website related to the event and share the information when something strikes your interest. It can also pay off to stay in touch with our office because we may even run a contest or promotion centering around gum disease awareness in 34238. Our goal at Strickland Family Dentistry is maintaining the oral health of our patients in Sarasota, FL, and one step in doing that is informing as many people as possible on what can benefit their teeth and gums and what can be a threat.
