Bastion Lighting Colour Purple: National Dental Hygienists Week

National Dental Hygienists Week (NDHW) is celebrated annually April 4-10, highlighting the importance of maintaining good oral health practices while helping Canadians to understand the vital role that dental hygienists play in the health care system. The theme "Oral Health for Total Health," reminds everyone that taking care of your mouth, teeth, and gums positively impacts other aspects of your lives. The colour purple is associated with dental hygiene, and has been the official colour of dental professionals since 1897 when lilac was first chosen for the emblem of the National Association of Dental Faculties. The Bastion will be coloured purple April 6 - 8, 2021
