    Description

    Oral health is a fundamental component of health and physical and mental well-being. Forrest General and the Mississippi State Department of Health is hosting a free Oral Health Education Seminar and Screening. 
     
    An oral health screening is helpful to call attention to obvious problems which you may not be aware of and to identify early risk factors for dental disease, mouth and throat cancers as well as other health issues.  A screening identifies problems that are visible to the naked eye and does not include a detailed exam or diagnoses. The oral health screenings will be performed by licensed dental providers.

    The educational seminar will be held from 6-7 pm on September 19, with screenings from 3-5 pm on September 20. Attendees must be present at the educational seminar to sign up for a screening. 

    Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
