Vancouver, WA (PRWEB) October 08, 2015
October is breast cancer awareness month and the staff at Columbia Orthodontics in Vancouver, Washington are joining in to help raise awareness. Their entire staff will be contributing by dressing in pink to get people thinking about this issue. Even Dr. Robert Croft will be taking part by sporting the bright color. To see pictures of past events, check them out on their Facebook page.
Their patients who visit the Vancouver, Washington orthodontic clinic during the month of October will receive a breast cancer awareness pin for free.
Columbia Orthodontics also wants their patients to hear that the Journal of Breast Cancer Research and Treatment released a statistic regarding breast cancer and oral health. The statistic is as follows, "You may be 11 times more likely to develop breast cancer if you have poor oral health or gum disease".
The Journal of Breast Cancer Research and Treatment is a scientific journal that is highly focused on investigating and treating breast cancer. Its target audience is clinical researchers, immunologists, clinical researchers, cell biologists and other medical professionals that may be interested in factors and research regarding breast cancer.
Those who access the Journal of Breast Cancer Research and Treatment can expect to find original research, invited reviews, discussions on controversial issues, book reviews, meeting reports, letters to the editors, and editorials. All of the manuscripts published in this website are peer reviewed by both a multidisciplinary and international panel of advisory editors.
Using the knowledge that poor dental hygiene can lead to breast cancer, Columbia Orthodontics encourages their patients to keep up to date with their oral health. They recommend that people consider receiving regular dental care and seeking orthodontic assistance when necessary to achieve the highest level of health possible.
