NBC Today Show Clip on Oral Health
Ouch!! Preschool Cavities On The Rise!Yesterday, the New York Times ran a very important story about the alarming increase in cavities and tooth decay among preschool aged children. The article reinforced the need for better parenting with respect to proper dental hygiene for babies and toddlers. Dentists interviewed for the piece attribute the rise in early tooth decay to 3 major reasons:
- Poor nutritional habits
- Parents giving kids bottled water instead of fluoridated tap water
- Lack of awareness about how early a child's oral health habits should begin.
