Oral and Dental Health Resource Portal


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 31% of adults between ages 20-44 have untreated dental caries. One out of every two American adults over 30 has periodontal disease. New Mouth, owned and funded by Dentistry Brands LLC, was created to keep the public educated about current dental care practices, oral health basics, and how to find the best treatment possible. Their team of medical writers and dentists provide the most up-to-date dental information in every vertical, including general, pediatric, restorative, cosmetic, and orthodontics. They also connect patients with the best dentists in their area depending on individual treatment needs. Please visit www.newmouth.com/dentistry/

Neighborhood Response

You can join a neighborhood quarantine response here. Volunteers on such teams help neighbors with compromised immune systems with daily tasks such as grocery shopping, walking the dog, picking up items from the post office etc.  If you don’t see your area on the list, create your own response team using the COVID-19 Volunteer Support Pack.

Contribute to Little Free Pantries
We all know and love the little free libraries that are scattered throughout the city, but in recent days, locals have transformed the small wooden boxes into temporary food banks. Drop off any extra nonperishable food items at spotted locations in Hampden and Canton, or transition a close-by mini community library into a makeshift food drive to help passerbys in need.
