Jon and Kate's kids need dental care too
Updated: 8/7/2009 3:00:23 PM

Jon and Kate The TLC megahit Jon and Kate Plus Eight may have hit a few snags as of late due to the couple's marital problems, but the kids are still receiving plenty of loving care from both parents, including dental care.

Media sources revealed that Jon Gosselin was photographed taking the sextuplets for a dental checkup near their home in Reading, Pennsylvania.

Since it's almost time for the Gosselin offspring and other kids across the country to head back to school, it’s a great idea to schedule a dental checkup before the big rush at the end of August.

The Centers for Disease Control and Surgeon General advise that children receive a dental checkup prior to the start of the school year.

Tooth decay is still prevalent among young children and it's been reported that 78 percent of American 17-year-olds have already had one filling.

Similarly, the CDC says that 51 million school hours are lost every year due to childhood dental diseases, meaning that it's doubly important to take your child to his or her dental checkup before entering a new grade.
