CLINICAS DEL CAMINO REAL, INC. IS HOSTING A DENTAL HEALTH FAIR ON FEBRUARY 29th 2020 IN HONOR OF NATIONAL CHILDREN’S DENTAL HEALTH MONTH
Clinicas invites the Ventura County Community to join them for a Dental Health Fair taking place Saturday, February 29th from 10am-2pm, at Haycox Elementary School located at 5400 Perkins Rd in the city of Oxnard. Clinicas will be providing free dental health screenings, fluoride varnish application, oral health information and free tooth brushes. There will also be coloring activities, games, prizes and raffles.
"At Clinicas we are aware that tooth decay affects more than 25 percent of U.S. children 2 to 5 years old and 50 percent of U.S. children 12 to 15 years old, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That is why Clinicas provides our pediatric patients preventative and curative oral healthcare year-round, both at our health centers and via our mobile dental unit throughout Ventura County. During the month of February, Clinicas will join the National Celebration of Children’s Dental Health Month by hosting a community Health Fair and community Oral Health Classes. These events allow our community to meet Clinicas dental providers, get information about oral health and receive a free dental screening and fluoride varnish treatment. Clinicas is truly making a difference in the lives of children by making oral health care and education accessible to all children" said Roberto S. Juarez, CEO of Clinicas.
During the Dental Health Fair and at the community Oral Health Classes taking place throughout Ventura County, parents will learn:
- When children should have their first dental visit
- Ways to prevent early childhood caries
- When to expect changes from primary to permanent teeth
