Our Jasper Ave Dental Choice cares greatly about Oral Health and the team takes pride in educating our patients and our community. We visited Save On Foods on 109th Street and connected with residents in the community, we handed out goodie bags filled with information and products.
“Good Oral Health positively affects your physical, mental and social well being, by allowing you to speak, eat, and socialize without pain, and discomfort.” – Roxanne Hermann, Office Manager at Jasper Ave Dental Choice
