On Friday, February 9th, the Pierce County Oral Health Coalition held it’s 2018 Symposium; “Brushing Up: Current Trends in Oral Health”.
We had more than a 100 attendees bringing together dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and students from different oral health organizations and schools. The event was a resounding success! Everyone had the opportunity to learn more about Silver Diamine Fluoride, as well as the Baby Teeth Matter program. We all heard health updates on the Heroin/Opioid Crisis, E-Cigarettes, Vape and Hookah and the impacts of drug use on oral health. Below are photos from our event and below the photos are links to the event handouts and presentations.
