In these tough economic times, it seems that parents are looking to schools as one way to increase their kids' dental health.
According to the CDC, 51 million school hours across the U.S. are lost by children each year due to their dental health problems, and the top chronic children's disease in the country is tooth decay, affecting 59 percent of children between the ages of 5 and 17.
Beth Truett, President and CEO of Oral Health America, says, "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." According to an opinion survey commissioned by Oral Health America, 72 percent of Hispanic parents believe that their children's dental health will increase if school officials emphasize 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. These discounted plans can save people money on oral health as well as provide their children with the dental care they need.
