Description

6 Day Dental & Orthodontics’ says “Don’t Mess with our Smiles”

ALLEN, Texas (October 1, 2013) – A local dental practice is raising awareness about dental health in a rather unique way. On October 19, the 6 Day Dental & Orthodontics Allen location is hosting “Don’t Mess with our Smiles,” an event inspired by Red Ribbon Week.

This year’s Red Ribbon Week is hosted October 23-31 and is devoted to educating youth on drug prevention. Red Ribbon Week provides a way to present an effective drug prevention curriculum to students. Some events hosted during this week will include essay contests, health fairs and wear red day.

To kick-off this week, 6 Day Dental & Orthodontics is hosting a fun and educational event with appearances by the local fire and police departments. A bouncy house, face painting and arts and crafts will be among the entertainment. Special guests include 6 Day Dental & Orthodontics’ Ambassador of Smiles, Mighty Molar Man and Friends. This cavity fighting team spreads the word about good dental health.

The event will be hosted at the 1205 W. McDermott Drive location in Allen, Texas from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

“We really want to get youth involved and understand the importance of saying no to drugs,” said Dr. John Bond, founder of 6 Day Dental & Orthodontics. “If kids need another reason to avoid drugs, they can rest assured that drugs absolutely do harm our teeth.”

Drug abuse is a big contribution to tooth decay, erosion and complete loss of teeth. 6 Day Dental & Orthodontics will provide an educational opportunity for youth to learn about these affects and how to prevent them from happening.
