CT Mission of Mercy 2018
Every year Connecticut Mission of Mercy holds a two-day clinic to provide free dental care to the undeserved and uninsured people of Connecticut that would otherwise go without dental care. The Connecticut Foundation for Dental Outreach in collaboration with the Connecticut State Dental Association held the state’s first Mission of Mercy project in 2008. Every year, the Connecticut Mission of Mercy project is held in a different location throughout the state. This year's CTMOM took place at Torrington High School. Our very own Dr. Matt Keefe and his assistant Tina Hebert volunteered their time on Friday April 20th, 2018.
Children's Dental Health Month
February is Children's Dental Health Month and every year Canton Valley Dental visits Cherry Brook Primary School to educate students on the importance of good oral health and home care. Dr. Matt and Melissa Porter speak to almost 500 children from Kindergarten to Third Grade. They educate them on tooth care knowledge and good homecare practices. They also emphasize the importance of proper nutrition and its role in good oral health. The students leave the presentation with a "goodie bag" to help them get excited about dental health!
