On Wednesday, May 18th, 2016, Dr. Stephen Lavrisa and some of his team members from All About You Dental Care in Geneva, IL had the privilege of participating in a health fair at the beautiful Greenfield’s of Geneva. One of Dr. Stephen Lavrisa’s areas of concentration in his family dental practice is Geriatric Dentistry. The entire staff of All About You Dental Care is committed to educating seniors on the need for good oral health care. It is so important for your entire systemic health because of the impact of high-risk oral bacteria entering the bloodstream. These bacteria contribute to cardiovascular disease, dementia, preterm labor, pancreatic cancer, diabetes, and more. Dr. Lavrisa has found that oral health is still extremely important for most seniors but they are just not confident on who can help them.
All About You Dental Care and Dr. Lavrisa provided complimentary oral cancer screenings and visual dental examinations. The residents of Greenfield’s of Geneva were able to sit and speak with Dr. Stephen Lavrisa and his team members. Due to mobility issues for some of the residents, getting out to the dentist for a simple exam can be challenging. To help ease those concerns; All About You Dental Care brought a portable dental examination chair directly to them. In addition, many residents are newer to the area or their previous dentist retired leaving them without the confidence in finding a new local dentist. The close proximity, only 2 miles from Greenfield’s of Geneva make All About You Dental Care a very convenient option for them and their oral health needs.
Giving back to the community is a core value of All about You Dental Care. Dr. Stephen Lavrisa and his team members have made a commitment to giving back to the beautiful community of Geneva. In fact, they are excitedly planning some other wonderful community outreach opportunities this summer. If you are interested in finding out more, their office contact number is (630) 262-9696.
