With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, your Seattle dentist is encouraging taking time to consider some statistics about breast cancer and how you can help in finding a cure. According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, it’s estimated that during 2012, among American women there will be:
- 226,870 new cases of invasive breast cancer
- 63,300 new cases of situ breast cancer
- 39,510 breast cancer deaths
Studies reveal that maintaining good oral health can help lower the likelihood of developing chronic health issues such as strokes, diabetes, heart disease, and various cancers — including breast cancer. That’s why Dr. Fidler and her team at Fidler on the Tooth encourage taking positive action to ensure that teeth and gums are kept healthy. This involves a diligent routine of regular brushing, cleaning between teeth daily with floss or another interdental cleaner, and professional dental cleanings with thorough check-ups.
In lending her support for breast cancer awareness, Dr. Fidler has a promotion that’s happening the whole month of October, and is encouraging you to take a moment to do your part. For every new Facebook Like and Google+ follower that she receives between Oct 1-31, 2012, Dr. Fidler will donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, dedicated to education and research about causes, treatment, and the search for a cure.
As your partner in health, Dr. Fidler encourages maintaining a problem-free smile, and a healthy body, by taking time for proper dental care. Show your support for finding the cure for breast cancer for the women of today and tomorrow by encouraging your friends and family to also partner up with your Seattle dentist. Join our dental family on Facebook and Google+ before the end of October 2012, and give women of the world a reason to smile.
