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!
Submit your Stop The Vape pledge by February 28, 2020 for a brighter smile and for your chance to receive one of two $250 scholarships.
Share this message with your friends. With your help, we can end vaping and stop e-cigarette-related deaths.
