Drews Dental Services is proud to announce that Peter J. Drews, DDS is partnering with St. Mary’s d’Youville Pavilion to provide dental support services and education to direct care staff and residents.

- Dry mouth, which can be caused by many medications the elderly population takes and can contribute to increased cavities.
- The care and cleaning of dentures and partials and how not removing them can create additional medical complications.
- Oral hygiene techniques for the physically compromised individuals.
