Right now 16 million children nationwide are affected by pediatric dental disease, more commonly known as tooth decay. In millions of cases, kids are needlessly suffering, unable to eat, sleep, play, learn or smile with confidence. Since 2006, America’s ToothFairy: National Children’s Oral Health Foundation has been helping underserved children and families access desperately needed treatment, preventive services, dental health education and oral care supplies – basic services and necessities that many families simply cannot afford.
Because the mouth is the gateway to the body, oral health affects every aspect of a person’s overall health. Your contributions provide underserved kids with the critical oral health resources and tools they need to give them a fair shot at experiencing a lifetime of overall health and wellness – that’s powerful! As an added benefit, your involvement at any level empowers America’s ToothFairy to raise national awareness of this pervasive, and in some cases deadly, disease, its consequences and ways to prevent it. Please take a few minutes to learn how you can get involved in helping us fight the #1 chronic disease among children in the U.S.
