“Pediatric dental disease, more commonly known as tooth decay, is the #1 chronic childhood disease. It may seem absurd to you that tooth decay has reached epidemic proportions, but a 2007 study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control determined that one in every five three-year-olds suffers from tooth decay. You will be even more surprised to learn that more than 40 percent of children have tooth decay by the time they start kindergarten!”
As stated in the article, keeping your children healthy is a number 1 priority in your children lives. Watching and making sure that your children eat healthy and always remember to brush, can lead to a more happier healthier family.
