Right now millions of children nationwide are affected by pediatric dental disease, more commonly known as tooth decay. In many cases, kids are needlessly suffering, unable to eat, sleep, play, learn or smile with confidence. They are waiting on caring individuals, organizations and companies like you to help them access desperately needed treatment, oral health education and oral care supplies like toothbrushes and toothpaste, which many of them simply do not have.
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.
We hope you will take a few minutes to learn how you can get involved by donating, volunteering or helping raise awareness of the importance of children’s oral health. No matter where you live, there are numerous opportunities to help put an end to childhood tooth decay.
