Risas Dental and Braces Celebrates National Children's Dental Health Month


PHOENIX, Jan. 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Risas Dental and Braces, a health care company committed to making dental care accessible to all, is celebrating National Children's Dental Health Month (NCDHM) by offering free exams and x-rays for all kids, as well as educating students on proper oral health care at a number of Arizona schools during the month of February.

"One of the top reasons kids miss school is due to dental problems," said Dr. Whitney Wright, founding orthodontist at Risas Dental and Braces. "It's crucial to educate them on proper care. Parents can help by ensuring they eat a balanced diet and have regular dental visits, so their teeth can remain healthy and strong."
