NDB works to reposition dental healthcare as less of an “aesthetics” service and more integral to general health and wellbeing. Current dental research supports our position that dental decay and periodontal disease are preventable.
Through understanding the relationships between the mouth and the body, NDB promotes building closer ties between allied health professionals and improving interdisciplinary communication and professional referral relationships.
Dental studies conducted have revealed that the majority of children whose parents sought emergency care for them in a hospital have no dentist. Therefore, support for having a Dental Home is a concept that NDB has made an initiative as part of our Dental Disease Management Program.
NDB employees live and work in our community. We are proud to be involved in local programs and coalitions that enhance the overall health of the families that live here.
