Senior Citizens invited to World Oral Health Day Activity FREE Dental Health Check Up on Friday

The Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour (Ministry VSA) Collective Prevention Services (CPS), is inviting senior citizens to a World Oral Health Day free dental check-up on Friday, March 20.

The activity is for seniors 60 and over.  It will take place on Friday at the Ministry of Public Health, Vineyard Building Office Park from 4.00pm to 6.30pm.

The activity is being organized in connection with World Oral Health Day which is celebrated annually on March 20.  It is an international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health and the importance of looking after oral hygiene to everyone old and young.

90 per cent of the world’s population will suffer from oral diseases in their lifetime.  The theme for 2015 is ‘Smile for life!” and has a double meaning: ‘lifelong smile’ and ‘celebrating life’.

Look out for the dental mobile which will be on site.  Those requiring additional information can call Irma Kinght-Gumbs at 543-2070 or 520-6811.
