Pacific Dental Services is recognizing American Heart Month by raising awareness of the importance of heart health, according to a news release.

Some of the ways Pacific Dental Services is observing the month include:  

• Participating in the American Heart Association’s National Wear Red Day on Feb. 4 to help raise awareness about heart disease and stroke in women.
• Encouraging patients and Pacific Dental Services team members to join the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s 28 Days Toward a Healthy Heart challenge as part of its #OurHearts movement.
• Inviting team members in Irvine, California; Dallas, Texas; and Henderson, Nevada; to spend some of their Valentine’s Days learning CPR to be better prepared in case of an emergency.
• Creating no-sew heart pillows to help patients recovering from heart surgery.
