Dental centers to give away bike, helmet

My Community Dental Centers has announced a statewide month-long sweepstakes that offers children ages 10 and under a chance to win a bicycle and helmet in honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month. One bicycle and helmet will be awarded at each participating MCDC center. In Alpena, the MCDC center is located at 100 Woods Circle, Ste. 600.

National Children’s Dental Health Month, sponsored by the ADA and Crest + Oral B, is a month-long national health observance that brings together thousands of dental professionals, healthcare providers and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers and teachers. This year’s slogan is “Brush your teeth with flouride toothpaste and clean between your teeth for a healthy smile.”
