Free dental exams for pregnant women
A study conducted by Advantage Dental Group found 30 percent of pregnant women get periodontal disease, which can be easily passed on to their unborn child. So, Newberg Family Dental is offering free dental exams and x-rays to pregnant women.
The problem is most mothers dont realize that they can be proactive and help prevent an unhealthy child from being born. Our biggest priority is helping mothers raise healthy children, said Randy Morgan, of Newberg Family Dental. We are happy to give free exams away if it means mothers will be healthier.
