“They’re just baby teeth, right?”
Tooth decay is the number one chronic infectious disease affecting children in the United States and is four times more common in children than asthma! Sadly, children with oral health problems are three times more likely to miss school due to dental pain than children with no oral health problems
This reference guide will save you money by avoiding the costly dental bills from restoring decayed and infected teeth. It will reduce time lost at school due to toothaches, and increase your child’s confidence and success by creating a beautiful smile they are proud to show off!
