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

"We have been handing out the "A Healthy Smile for Every Child" oral health literature to Spanish speaking families along with English speaking families. This excellent resource has made a huge impact in the Hispanic population and the transient population we serve. A Hispanic Spanish speaking 10 year old was visiting our clinic with her family and she was teaching her mother how to take care of her younger sibling's teeth while pointing to the brochure. She was eager and passionate about wanting everyone in her family to be dentally healthy."
