Proper dental care is especially important for young children, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that poor oral hygiene can affect how these individuals speak, play, learn or eat starting at an early age.
Some schools are receiving free care for young students who may need dental services.
For example, nearly 600 preschool children in Wisconsin counties will be provided with $30,000 in oral care for one day. Volunteers, such as dentists, hygienists and students who are enrolled in dental programs, will administer the services.
The program, called Head Start Dental Day, will provide the preschoolers with free fluoride treatments and cleanings as well as instructions on how to practice better oral hygiene. Tom Raimann, one of the volunteers involved, said that this will help young children receive their dental exam requirements for school, as well as give dental professionals "the opportunity to examine uninsured and underserved children."
Families who need to provide their young children with the proper dental care may do so by seeking low-cost coverage. Discount dental plans offers affordable coverage for these individuals.
