​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​YOUR DENTAL HEAL​​​TH

Your Dental Health (TM) is a public education program of the BC Dental Association (BCDA) providing general dental health information. Information presented on this website, our Facebook page or public service advertising does not in any way replace the advice of your dentist, dental specialist or other health professionals.

On behalf of our member dentists and dental specialists in BC, the BCDA initiated the Your Dental Health education program to promote the important connection between oral and general health, and the value of regular dental care for the early detection and prevention of dental disease. We encourage all patients to become active and informed partners in their oral health, and the oral health of children and seniors in their family. Please use the information on our site to prompt discussion about your individual care and risk reduction with your dentist, dental specialist or family doctor.
