SOME HUMBLING FACTS ABOUT GLOBAL ORAL DISEASE
Many kids throughout the world have no means to care for their oral health. The dental clinic is too far away. They don't have fluoride and they don’t have a toothbrush. What they do have is an increasingly sugary diet. The result is often CHRONIC pain, tooth loss, missing school, disability and impaired psychological and physical development
