DENTAL EDUCATION AND SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
US Dental Care values the promotion of good dental hygiene practice. With in this in mind, we offer a specially developed free dental hygiene program for schools, kindergartens and other institutions, including expat groups and embassies. Our fun educational hygienist visits and our informational visits (for example, supporting a school Sports Day or Parent-Teacher Meeting), have proven to be very popular and well-received by the children, teachers and parents alike. For a small fee, we are also happy to organize a class or school full dental check visit.
As an extension of this program, we also offer a dental charity program, providing free education visits as well as check-up and cleaning days at our clinic for charities based in Moscow. Throughout the year we actively support local charities through various fundraising events and related activities. During 2009 US Dental Care sponsored United Way, Action for Russia’s Children, the Nastenka Foundation, the Taganka Children’s Fund, Moscow Animals and Kitezh.
If you are interested in either program, please contact our PR and Marketing Department on 363 2745.
USEFUL ADVICE: Regular dental examinations and cleaning treatments are recommended for the maintenance of good oral health in adults and children (from the age of 6 months to one year, depending on when their first tooth erupts). The frequency of your routine dental visits should be determined by your dentist or dental hygienist, based on your individual needs – more frequent visits than once or twice a year may be necessary for those at increased risk of oral diseases due to age, pregnancy, tobacco and alcohol use, periodontal diseases, oral hygiene, and some particular health conditions (for example: diabetes, dry mouth). As a US Dental Care patient, you will receive a full diagnosis of your dental health with a personalized treatment plan.
