Oral Health

Oral health is an important component of overall health, and poor oral health is a leading cause for students missing school. In a time when each day in school is even more important, and when oral health services have been limited due to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are in strong support of efforts to improve access to oral health care so that no child has to suffer from dental disease.
