February is National Children’s Dental Health Month (#NCDHM)!
What a great time to recognize the importance of kids’ teeth. Yes, teeth.
For kids, not properly caring for teeth can lead to cavities, decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. It can force kids to miss school and fall behind in their academic development. More than that, it can eventually contribute to mental health issues, heart disease, certain cancers, and other major problems—all more prevalent among Latinos.
The bottom line = Latino and all kid’s smiles matter!
