The National Children's Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF) has unveiled a new website, America's Toothfairy, to help educate users about the benefits of dental care.
The NCOHF has been working to eliminate pediatric dental disease by staying focused on the dental health and education of the country's most economically challenged children and their families.
"Even though pediatric dental disease is completely preventable," said the NCOHF, "it affects millions of children in our country, causing pain so severe it can impact a child's ability to eat, sleep, learn and thrive."
Through various programs, the NCOHF finds ways to arrange dental care for those children who have limited access due to where they live, their financial situation or lack of dental insurance. The foundation also encourages dentists to be more active in the community and offer a dental home for children in need.
The ADA recommends children see a dentist in their area at least twice a year. Poor dental health has been associated with poor health outcomes and a greater risk of a number of other diseases.
