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 products

Absence of Medicaid

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 believe every child deserves a healthy smile.

As a resource provider, we increase access to oral health care by supporting nonprofit clinics and community partners delivering education, prevention and treatment services for underserved children.

We teach families why oral health is important and how to take care of their mouths.

We provide funding so low-income families can access dental care.

We supply basic oral hygiene products for daily care.

Meet Sam

Sam* is just like other fourth graders you may know. But, like 1-in-5 kids in America, he hadn't been to the dentist in over a year (three years, to be exact.) When the team from one of our Dental Resource Program member clinics met him at a Screen & Seal event at his school, they also discovered he had two cavities that needed to be filled.

Meet Atticus & Will

How often do you worry about smiling? When we asked middle and high school students in Southern California to submit essays about how orthodontic care would change their lives, their responses were heart-breaking.

"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."
