Does your workplace encourage good oral hygiene?
Oral and dental care is a serious aspect of overall health and well-being. Many business owners and managers take their employees’ physical health into account on a regular basis – the recent increases in standing desk, anti-obesity programmes and fitness incentives in the workplace is proof of this trend. However, does your office promote good dental health practices? How important is oral hygiene in your plan to support your employees’ health and well-being?
Why is it important to support dental health at work?
You may be asking yourself why the workplace is an appropriate place to promote oral hygiene. For many workers, health care and work are inextricably linked. Some workers find private health benefits through their employers, and the case is no different for dental health care.
Only 1 in 2 Canadians has private dental health cover. This means that if you don’t currently promote oral health in your workplace, about half of your workers may not have any dental health coverage at all.
