Dental disease is preventable yet the majority of oral health efforts focus on restorative care, rather than prevention. This creates a revolving door of drill, fill and pull where children access services only when in severe pain or in need of invasive and expensive treatment. Why?

  • Misconceptions about the importance of baby teeth
  • Lack of knowledge about the impact of oral health on overall health
  • Ignorance about the spread of oral bacteria
  • Not knowing how to care for teeth
  • Failure to establish healthy habits from an early age
  • Cultural barriers
