National Breast Cancer Foundation

 

Consultants in Dental Aesthetics has partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. Our purpose is to increase our humanitarian footprint through dentistry. 

Did you know that those who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease are 11 X more susceptible to contracting breast cancer in their lifetime?*

 

Consultants in Dental Aesthetics has committed to donating $10 per quadrant of periodontal therapy performed. This can significantly assist NBCF and improve the overall health of our patients.

*According to The Journal of Breast Cancer Research and Treatment and The World Health Organization

If you have been diagnosed with periodontal therapy, it won’t go away on its own; take action and schedule your periodontal therapy today and we will donate up to $40 dollars to NBCF on your behalf.
