Stop the Vape. Sign the Pledge.

Sign the Pledge and Say No to Vaping

Hill & Ioppolo Oral & Dental Implant Surgery of Lubbock has joined with Project Save A Mouth to educate local students about the dangers of vaping and electronic cigarettes.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, and not only can vaping cause damage to the lungs, but it can also impact oral health. While there are great strides being made to reduce smoking among teenagers, vaping has become a new, deadly addiction.

Help us Stop The Vape and sign our pledge by February 28, 2020 for a healthier life and for your chance to receive one of two $250 scholarships or one of two opportunities to job shadow in our office.
