Oral Health Month: The Role of the Dentists in Maintaining Good Oral Health
Oral health month is an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of good oral health and the critical role that dentists play in diagnosing and treating oral health issues.
Poor oral health can lead to a variety of issues from tooth decay and gum disease to more serious conditions such as oral cancer. Dentists play a critical role in educating patients about good oral health practices. This includes providing guidance on proper brushing and flossing techniques, as well as offering advice on healthy eating habits and lifestyle choices that can help to maintain good oral health.
The NDEB supports quality dental care through the evaluation of competence. NDEB certification indicates that a dentist has demonstrated the knowledge, skills, and abilities required of dentists in Canada.
