Oral Health Month
As key members of our communities
The campaign’s theme “As key members of our communities”, which conveys that dentists are rooted in their environment, aims to shed light on their essential role in the various communities and causes they serve, from patients, children and hospitals to the public health system, the Far North and the Auberges du cœur.
The dentists and their team are also part of your well-being.
Your dentist is trained to identify more than 200 diseases and conditions that can affect your mouth.

Throughout the month of April, we will be posting oral health-related tiles on the ACDQ Facebook page (in French) that feature advice from dentists in response to certain myths, popular beliefs or home remedies.

To add to the impact of our media mix, here is our radio ad which is regularly broadcast on Cogeco stations (in French). It captures the essence of our positioning; community-based.

Listen to the main interviews (in French) he gave on that day:
