That's why I was so intrigued about the SIMPLE Service project Spin into Action from Champions for Kids. According to their website:
Over 19% of children ages 2-19 have untreated cavities. A child’s complete
preventive dental program should include fluoride, at least twice-daily brushing,
wise food choices, and regular dental care.
Oral care can be one of the most overlooked things - when there's a problem, it's expensive and sometimes you just can't afford it. This is why prevention is key. Making sure kids have access to a toothbrush all the time can be a fight! I know Eli loves to play with his, drag it around with him.. and yep, lose it! This can lead to not getting his teeth brushed that night... and what if I didn't have the money to replace it the next day? What if I had to wait two weeks or a month for my next paycheck?
