On Nov 17th, the ADO volunteers visited Hong Lok House, the Cantonese cultural center of the Golden Age Center, to deliver their 2nd oral health educational presentation this semester. The presentation focuses on the etiology, prevention, and management of periodontitis.
“At the end of the presentation, a lady approached me and proudly showed off a box of gum picks that she carried with her everywhere. She said she used them 2-3 times daily, then she proceed to show me her pearly whites and healthy gums. It was moments like this that made me take pride in my career and inspired me to continue to care for the community.” (Ainsley Chung, D25).
