Most of us know what healthy teeth look like, but are you familiar with what proper gum care is? Healthy gums are firm and pink, while signs of poor gum health may include redness and swelling, or gums that bleed while brushing. #ToddlerLife #AAPDFoundation #BigLoveForLittleTeeth

Dental Home Day 2019

Dental Home Day is a day of service and a year of care, thanks to Sunstar Americas, Dental Home Day sponsor since 2013. AAPD Foundation donors and AAPD members gathered on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 to help the underserved children of Illinois receive access to dental care.

Last year, Dental Home Day was held at St. Bernard Hospital Ambulatory Care Clinic, an AAPD Foundation single-year grantee. Throughout the course of the day, children received teeth examinations, cleanings and treatments for any dental issues they may have. AAPD Foundation is providing St. Bernard a $20,000 Access to Care Grant to continue to provide care to Dental Home Day children and become a permanent Dental Home.
