Feb 15, 2014: Free Oral Care and Education Available as Aspen Dental and Oral Health America Kick Off Healthy Mouth Movement

GTBOHC’s Executive Director, Kim Herremans with Aspen Dental COO, Rob Gordon and Oral Health America’s Dora Fisher in front of the Healthy Mouth Mobile at Keel and Curley Winery in Plant City on Saturday, Feb 15. Aspen Dental volunteers provided free dental care for over 40 adult clients from the Tampa Bay Area. The Healthy Mouth Movement is an Aspen Dental marketing campaign to bring awareness for the need of affordable dental care for adults. Along with much needed dental care, clients also received local resource guides to find health services and assistance to enroll into affordable health plans. NASCAR’s sweetheart, Danika Patrick, is this years spokesperson for the Healthy Mouth movement and her car will be sponsored this year by Aspen Dental. We wish Aspen Dental safe travels as they leave to other parts of the country to serve adults in need of dental care.


Suncoast provided an eligibility specialist to help people enroll into health insurance programs.
