March 5, 2020
Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine and Chief Dental Officer Dr. Mana Mozaffarian are encouraging all Pennsylvanians to make their oral health a priority, highlighting the department’s goals to prevent oral disease to improve the overall health of residents.
“Good oral health is an integral part of ensuring that we have a healthy Pennsylvania for all,” Dr. Levine said. “Untreated dental disease can lead to serious health effects, such as pain, infection and tooth loss, and even heart disease. Watching out for your oral health is truly a step to improve your overall health.”
