Risas Dental and Braces is celebrating National Children’s Dental Health Month in February by offering free exams and X-rays for kids and educating students on proper oral health care at a number of Phoenix-area schools.
“About 147 million kids drink at least some sugar-sweetened beverage daily, so it’s no wonder one of the top reasons kids miss school is due to dental problems,” said Dr. Whitney Wright, founding orthodontist at Risas Dental. “What children eat and drink not only affects their oral health, but their overall well-being. It’s critical to educate them on the importance of proper care.”
Risas Dental and Braces will offer free exams and X-rays for all children ages 17 and younger between Feb. 1-28. Parents can make an appointment fat any of Risas Dental’s offices, by calling 480-566-2930 or they can book online at www.risasdental.com. Local offices include Metrocenter, 10621 N. 35th Ave., and Phoenix Central, 4501 N. 7th St.
