An important part of your health and longevity is centered around your mouth. It’s also important for socializing – you don’t want the effects of gingivitis or gum disease to take root and cause bad breath, bleeding gums or unsightly issues. Larger health problems can
stem from issues that can likely be taken care of with a trip to the dentist. And now, you don’t even have to pay for it. Mercy Health is offering free dental cleanings
and screenings to patients 50 years or older. You don’t have to be a previous Mercy patient, you just have to make an appointment and fill out an application. 8:30am-noon.
Thursdays. Mercy Health Senior Wellness Center, 545 Indiana Ave., 419-251-8930.
