Tooth decay is an inconvenience for most families. But for many children, treatment is out of reach. They live each day in pain. They miss school. They can’t sleep. Even eating hurts. They lose teeth and risk dangerous infections that can be deadly.

How does this happen in the wealthiest country in the world?

Tooth decay is an inconvenience for most families. But for many children, treatment is out of reach. They live each day in pain. They miss school. They can’t sleep. Even eating hurts. They lose teeth and risk dangerous infections that can be deadly.

How does this happen in the wealthiest country in the world?

Unawareness that tooth decay is a contagious disease

Lack of basic oral health

Absence of Medicare

In some cases, parental neglect

Belief that baby teeth don't matter

Failure to form good oral health habits

Restricted access to dentists

Homelessness

Inability to pay for dental care

"[Our patient] would have had to endure pain and risk losing teeth if it was not for your charitable donation. With multiple areas of decay, abscesses, extractions and the need for pulpectomies and crowns, and not qualifying for Medicaid or any other insurance, her family could not afford the bill. Thanks to you, the family did not have to sacrifice necessities. After undergoing sedation and full mouth treatment, our patient is orally stable and healthy with a bright smile."
