Dental professionals and caring individuals and corporations have come together to make up America’s Tooth Fairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation. The goal of the Foundation is to defeat the leading childhood disease in this country – tooth decay.
The fact is that tooth decay can lead to serious infection, malnutrition, and affect the overall quality of the lives of those children who suffer from it. Statistics show us that a significant percentage of preschool children will develop cavities and that tooth decay is a primary cause of school aged children missing days of valuable classroom time.
The Foundation promotes prevention through education. It has created programs in schools across the US that have been successful in spreading the word on the importance of regular dental checkups. With the technology of radiology and preventive techniques such as dental sealants and fluoride treatments pediatric dentists are able to offer the quality care that will reduce serious consequences from childhood tooth decay.
The Foundation invites you to visit their website, www.ncohf.org and learn more about their efforts to prevent tooth decay and how you can help. You can read up on the history of the organization, update their progress and find out how to contribute to their cause.
