Dental Care

Oral health is important. Not only because it is important to have a healthy mouth, but also because it affects other areas of health, including nutrition and cardiovascular conditions. If someone cannot afford to pay for dental care, the Greater Bangor area offers reduced cost dental programs and donated dental services.
