Brewster, NY (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Dr. Carl F. Ern, of Putnam Dental Associates, appeared on NBC's "American Health Front!" half-hour program on NBC New York. This program provides up-to-date and comprehensive healthcare and medical information to viewers in the Tri-state area. The “American Health Front!” program will certainly complement the many hours of healthcare coverage currently provided through NBC New York newscasts, NBC network programming and on nbcnewyork.com.
Dr. Ern believes in the importance of dental care, especially preventative care. The current special event at Putnam Dental Associates is "Kids are Free Wednesdays in June". Putnam Dental is inviting new kids age 3 and up to come for their first visit to the dentist for free. Their goal for all people is to change a fear of the dentist into a fear of not going to the dentist -- so one way to do it is to start them young and show them how much fun it can be. Each child is getting their picture taken with the "tooth fairy" Evelise, they get a whole bag of goodies and some homemade smiley cookies. Putnam Dental instructs their patients that eating fun snacks is okay so long as they take care of their teeth.
According to statistics from the Center of Disease Control, 30% of US citizens will lose all their teeth by the time they are 65 and another 30% will lose half their teeth by that time. Dentistry is important preventive medicine for overall health and quality of life. Dr. Ern says, "Every conversation, every smile, every kiss and every meal depends on a healthy mouth! And science is demonstrating that oral health can be a reflection of overall health. As in general health care, preventive measures cost a lot less than bigger problems that result from letting time go by without treatment."
