Back-to-School Checklist Should Include Dental Health

Experts all agree that quality dental care should be part of the back-to-school checklist.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates more than 51 million school hours are lost each year due to students’ dental-related problems.

Our kids really do need to focus more on preventive care if they want to avoid serious dental problems in the future.

Children should always brush their teeth thoroughly and have fluoride treatments to help prevent them from requiring a root canal, filling or false teeth in the future.

It’s widely reported that tooth decay in children is preventable, yet in some areas, 50% of children show signs of dental decay by the third grade.

To enjoy a healthy life in the future we must ensure that we practice good dental and oral hygiene from a your age.
