This October, Benevis is combining two national celebrations – Dental Hygiene Month and Orthodontic Health Month – in the very first Happy, Healthy Smile Month. The inaugural celebration reflects the extremely important role of both dental hygiene and orthodontia in a comprehensive oral health program that can help maintain a happy, healthy, confident smile for an entire lifetime.
Benevis is observing Happy, Healthy Smile Month by delivering fun, educational tools to the 120 communities and 14 states we currently serve. Not only will kids in our communities receive coloring kits, puzzles, fun facts and informational tools on the importance of dental hygiene and braces, but we will also make a kit available online HERE for anyone who asks.
“We have a lot to celebrate at Benevis,” said Bryan Carey, Chief Executive Officer of Benevis. “Over the past 20 years, this team has had the privilege of providing excellent dental care to more than 3.8 million children and families. Bringing awareness and education to our communities is important, and October’s Happy, Healthy Smile Month is another way for us to do just that. Each year nearly half of all children with Medicaid coverage do not visit the dentist. We want this awareness and education to reach them, their parents, caregivers, schools and health professionals.”
“In addition to community education, we are also celebrating our 400 dental hygienists, 300 dentists and 65 orthodontists who provide compassionate, high quality care to patients in Benevis-affiliated offices daily,” said, Dr. Dale Mayfield, Chief Dental Officer at Benevis. “Every day our team improves lives by providing education and care to help patients have healthier, more confident smiles.”
