Dear Parent

Do you know that:

Tooth decay is the most common chronic health problem that children suffer (more common than asthma and hay fever).

Poor oral health for children can bring pain, infection, malnutrition, affects their brain development, growth, self esteem, school attendance and performance.

Tooth decay of their baby teeth can bring decay for their adult teeth.

Poor oral health for children means missed employment, emotional and financial stress for parents.

Tooth decay for children is a predictable and preventable. Parents essentially promote their child's dental health or problems.

What you know and do each day is most important for your child to grow a healthy smile, not dental visits.

"Growing" your child's smile begins at birth.
