Timberhill Dental Visits Jamaica

We Love Giving Back! At Timberhill Dental, we’re fortunate to be able to volunteer our time and skills to provide dental care to those who need it.

Our hygienists cleaned teeth and helped the patients we worked with to improve their dental hygiene!

Generally speaking, if you are missing one or more teeth you are likely a candidate for dental implants.

February Is The Perfect Time

February is the perfect time to help students brush up on good oral health habits with these dental health and literacy resources. 71 Reports show that American students miss 51 million hours of school every year because of oral health problems. And students who are absent miss critical instruction time—especially in early grades where reading skills are an important focus and the building blocks of future learning. And students who have experienced recent oral health pain are four times more likely to have lower grade point averages than their counterparts who have not. That's why NEA's Read Across America and its sponsor, Renaissance Dental, are celebrating National Children's Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of good oral [...]
