ProHEALTH Dental is proud to announce a new clinical and academic collaboration with Mount Sinai Health System and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Together we are spearheading an Oral Health Initiative to educate our community about the reality that poor oral health contributes to serious – and often preventable – health conditions and chronic diseases.
By expanding dental training, education, and services for patients, our partnership will offer high quality, comprehensive care that emphasizes the necessity of good oral hygiene. A consistent oral hygiene regimen is key to a healthy lifestyle. When your teeth and gums are healthy, you lower your risk of developing a host of physical and mental health issues, including:
• Tooth decay and gum disease
• Heart disease, which is closely linked to periodontitis
• Rheumatoid arthritis and general joint inflammation
• Reduced self-esteem
• Poor sleep patterns due to tooth and gum pain
• Reduced memory function
Regular checkups and bi-annual cleanings are a crucial part of preserving your overall health, and the ProHEALTH Dental team is excited to collaborate with Mount Sinai to share this message and help every member of our community lead a healthy, happy life.
Our state-of-the-art Long Island City office will open October 1, with more locations to come in the next year. To schedule your appointment, click here or call 855-PHD-CARE. We look forward to seeing you!
