Parents believe schools can help kids' dental hygiene
Updated: 9/7/2010 7:00:11 PM

Parents believe schools can help kids Parents are looking to schools as one way to increase their kids' dental health.

According to the CDC, each year, 51 million school hours are lost by children across the United States due to the top chronic children's disease in the tooth decay. The dental health disease affects 59 percent of children between the ages of 5 and 17.

Beth Truett, President and CEO of Oral Health America, tells The State Journal Register, "If we want our children to be in school, ready to learn, both parents and schools have vested interest in working together with dental care providers to teach good habits that will last a lifetime and keep mouths health." Parents believe that their children's dental health will increase if school officials emphasized the importance of keeping a clean mouth.

One way to fix this problem without turning to school officials first is to look for an affordable, low-cost dental health plan. Discount dental plans provide people with multiple options to choose from.
