I thought this company offered dental care . I found out they only give tooth brushing lessons by teachers in a classroom. Their website is misleading. I would not refer to them for health.

Hi, Catlady. We are so sorry you had any misconceptions about what MORE HEALTH does. We provide health and injury prevention education to children, teens, and adults in the Tampa bay area, as reflected on our morehealthinc.org website. We have taught over 3 million students in the past 25 years topics such as nutrition, dental hygiene, heart health, and safety and first aid. If you are in need of dental services, I would encourage you to go to the tampabayoralhealth.com website and click on the list of dental provider resources. Thank you, Karen Pesce Buckenheimer, Executive Director
