by Shearly (SU)
Many of us fail understand the importance of twice-yearly dental checkups, because of this an increasing number of people have reduced the rates of seeing a dentist to just once a year or completely forgo these check-ups.

If you do, just imagine seeing the joy on children’s faces and giving them a reason to smile again.
