Sign the Pledge and Say No to Vaping
North Sound Oral & Facial Surgery and Project Save A Mouth are teaming up this February to educate Anacortes and Northwest Washington-area students about the life-threatening impacts of e-cigarettes.
During National Children’s Dental Health Month, we want to bring attention to vaping not only as a danger to lung health but oral health. Join us as we work to Stop The Vape in our region!
Thank you for pledging to Stop the Vape. With your help, we are continuing to promote healthy lifestyle choices among students of all ages in our community. If you were unable to sign our Stop the Vape Pledge during National Children’s Dental Health Month, please fill out the form below.
