Midmark Supports Healthy Mouths for All Americans by Supporting Oral Health America’s 2015 Fall for Smiles Campaign

Dayton, OH
DAYTON, Ohio, Sept. 14, 2015 — Midmark Corporation, a leader in innovative equipment solutions within the dental industry, announced its sponsorship of the 2015 Fall for Smiles campaign, which runs through the end of October.

Older adults are facing a crisis when it comes to oral health, with 10,000 Americans reaching retirement age every day and no dental coverage available through Medicare. Midmark believes a healthy mouth is essential to maintaining good overall health for older adults and Americans of all ages and is proud to participate in Oral Health America's (OHA) Fall for Smiles campaign to spread the message of the importance of oral health. The annual Fall for Smiles campaign encourages Americans to keep a healthy mouth through daily brushing and flossing, regular dental visits, a healthy diet and avoiding tobacco products.

Midmark’s Vice President and General Manager, Dental Division Eric Shirley stated, "We're excited to support the Fall for Smiles campaign again this year. It’s a wonderful opportunity for us to partner with Oral Health America and other organizations to help educate people in our community about the importance of oral health. In fact, studies show that dental health is key to overall health. New research continues to demonstrate the link between poor oral health and many chronic health conditions which affect our quality of life.”

The campaign's webpage, oralhealthamerica.org/fallforsmiles, features several free resources for dental offices, adults and children, including a tip sheet, interactive quiz, oral health activities and customizable materials to help spread the message of the importance of oral health. Midmark encourages everyone to Fall for Smiles this September and October so Americans of all ages have the healthiest mouths possible.
