The weekend of June 28-30, Jefferson Dental Clinics participated in the 6th edition of the Copa Univision soccer tournament. The tournament is one of the largest soccer tournaments in the nation and this year had a record-breaking number of participants. Not even the heat was a factor in gathering the communities around the Dallas area for some fun outdoors.
At Jefferson Dental, we know the importance of not only helping the community get fit but also inform them about oral health. Most people are unaware of the impact that oral health can have on their overall well-being. People who don’t take care of their teeth are more at risk to develop illnesses such as diabetes, heart problems or even oral cancer. Jefferson Dental educated attendees and provided free oral kits to maintain optimal oral hygiene. To celebrate the importance of staying active as part of a healthy lifestyle, Jefferson Dental gave custom made soccer balls to promote Latin America’s favorite sport.
We must remember that having good oral health will lead to a healthier life. Be the example your children can follow and encourage them to stay active by involving them in sports and outdoor activities. So get out and have some fun under the sun and visit your dentist regularly to be in the best shape and health you can be!
