A Healthy Smile Helps You Lead a Healthy Life!

One of the best results of good dental care is a beautiful, glowing smile! Did you know that your oral health and hygiene plays an important role in your overall physical wellbeing?

Making sure your teeth and gums are healthy is very important. At Bullhook Community Health Center, we offer a full range of dental care services. We believe that dental care is extremely important. Our patient’s quality of life is greatly improved by regular oral care.

Making sure you see a dentist regularly can help with early diagnosis of many different illnesses, including leukemia, skin conditions, mental illness such as anxiety and depression, diabetes, thyroid conditions, cancer, or hardened arteries.

Almost 75% of adults in America have some type of undiagnosed gum disease. Gum disease can actually progress into serious, even life threatening conditions – including oral cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and respiratory problems.

It's important for you to take good care of your teeth and gums while pregnant.

  • Pregnant women with gum disease are three to five times more likely to give birth prematurely. Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that increase the risk of developing gum disease which, in turn, can affect the health of your developing baby.

When should your child first visit the dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that a child go to the dentist by age 1 or within six months after the first tooth erupts. Primary teeth typically begin growing in around 6 months of age.
