Celebrate National Dental Hygiene Month by Building Good Oral Health Habits.

In celebration of National Dental Hygiene Month in October, United Concordia Dental, one of the nation's largest dental insurers, offers several tips to help build good oral hygiene habits.

"It's important that you - and your children - see a dentist regularly," said Jerome Blum, corporate dental director, DDS. "Dentists not only take care of your teeth, they are also trained to look for signs of other issues, including bumps and sores that may be signs of a medical problem."

"At United Concordia, we take the oral health of our members very seriously," he said. "In fact, we are presently conducting a study to better understand the link between oral health and such medical conditions as heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Our ultimate goal is to help children and their parents understand the importance of proper dental care."
