Last Wednesday April 2, 2014 at Hispanicize 2014 #hispz14, Dr. Sarita Arteaga, President of Hispanic Dental Association (HDA) Foundation, and Dr. Ivan Lugo, former HDA President and currently with @CrestLatino participated at a panel about Hispanics and Oral Health. The panel was moderated by Ana Patricia Gonzalez from Despierta America at Univision.
The panelists discussed the importance of Oral Health to Hispanic Families. Among some of the stats shared as a result of a recent survey, this is one that stood up for me:
65% of Hispanics vs. 72% of the General population still remain less likely to rate their overall oral health as “excellent” or “good”
The insightful session lasted 50 minutes. Here’s a 1-min video footage to get a glimpse/taste. (Check Hispanicize video to watch the entire discussion)
And here’s the audience paying attention to tips on Oral Health and participating on the FACT or MYTH exercise….
