Caries Disease Awareness Month started as a movement dedicated to changing public perception about mouth health. We seek to educate the public about the actual cause of cavities. Decay is a disease process that can affect anyone regardless of good dental hygiene and low sugar intake. Fortunately, this process can be interrupted with the help of a dental professional that focuses on risk assessment.
October has been defined as the month to bring awareness to the way we talk about cavities, the disease process and the prevention of caries. Please help our mission by supporting the awareness month and start changing the language today!
