Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2009
Aspen Dental is partnering with Oral Health America (OHA) in support of OHA's National Spit Tobacco Education Program (NSTEP), an oral health education and oral cancer prevention program, at the Little League Baseball World Series (LLBWS), August 21-August 30, 2009 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
The NSTEP program focuses on educating young athletes and parents about the importance of good oral health, the dangers of tobacco use and the prevention of oral cancer.
"When detected early, oral cancer is treatable," says Dr. Arwinder Judge, Vice President, Clinical Support, Aspen Dental Management, Inc. (ADMI). "That's why it's so important to educate people starting at an early age about the dangers of tobacco use and the need for good oral health. It's essential that young people are made aware of what they can do to prevent oral cancer, and ways that they can get into good oral health habits.
"As the nation's premier branded dental group practice, Aspen Dental-affiliated dentists and hygienists are committed to enhancing the oral health literacy of patients so they fully understand the importance of good oral healthcare. That's why our partnership with Oral Health America is such a natural fit," continued Judge.
Aspen Dental will be on site during the Little League World Series to distribute patient education materials and offer information about its 200 locations nationwide. In addition, Aspen Dental is offering 20 percent off general dental services and $10 off Vizilite® Plus Oral Cancer Screening to all attendees of the Little League Baseball World Series.

Each Aspen Dental office provides a full range of services to patients including general and cosmetic dentistry such as teeth whitening, hygiene and oral surgery, and fixed and removable prosthetic dentistry.
