Visiting a Dental Clinic



Full course description


To keep our teeth and gums healthy, we should visit a dental clinic once every 6 months. This will allow the dentist to discover any issues with our teeth and gums early, e.g. dental caries or cavities, gum disease, etc.

This course will share why we should visit a dental clinic regularly, how we can make an appointment online, and what we can expect at the dental clinic.
