Help Alleviate Preventable Dental Disease and Tooth Loss
More than 108 million children and adults in the U.S. do not have dental insurance, two times the number not covered by medical insurance. As a result of this financial roadblock, many Americans forego the recommended maintenance schedule to the detriment of their oral health. In fact, approximately 75 percent of Americans have some form of periodontal disease, an inflammatory condition that is the leading contributor to tooth loss.
We feel it is important to tell you about some organizations that are devoted to alleviating preventable oral disease and tooth loss. We are helping these non-profit organizations with their missions and hope you will, too.
