At the upcoming Feb. 22 Ladies Night Out program, the topic will be Dental Health.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, Americans make about 500 million visits to dentists each year. In 2009, an estimated $102 billion was spent on dental services in the United States. Oral health is often taken for granted but it affects people of all ages. Good oral health helps us to speak, smile, smell, taste, chew, swallow and use facial expressions. Poor oral health leads to problems for millions of Americans each year.
