PROJECT HEALTHY SMILE
June 21, 2011

Project Healthy Smile addresses an important health issue so many of us take for granted. According to the Center for Disease Control tooth decay affects children in the United States more than any other chronic infectious disease. One can only imagine how it affects children in impoverished countries. Many children have never even seen a toothbrush. Bad oral health can lead to many systemic health problems. Teaching children good habits at a young age increases their chances of carrying those good habits into adulthood. Project Healthy Smile has a powerful mission that will change the lives of many children one smile at a time.
