There is nothing more precious than a child’s smile. However, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, nearly half of children aged 6-11 are affected by tooth decay. While largely preventable, tooth decay is exacerbated with children in underserved communities, who are twice as likely to suffer from this condition, and their dental diseases are more than twice as likely to go untreated. It can also lead to missed school, trouble eating, sleeping and heightened risk of infection.
With a commitment of healthier smiles for all, America's ToothFairy has teamed up with Crest and Oral-B Kids and actor, Miles Brown on a new Conquer Cavities 2Gether initiative. Conquer Cavities 2Gether encourages kids and parents to take the pledge to brush for two minutes, twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. For every pledge, Crest and Oral-B Kids will donate up to 10,000 Conquer Cavities kits, including toothpaste, toothbrushes and educational materials, to the children that are served through our Dental Resource Program.
