Oral Health

Maintaining good oral health is more than just about those pretty smiles. Young children who suffer from tooth pain may not be able to describe it and the pain can make them less than ideal playmates and negatively impact their behavior. We offer trainings, tools, and support to the early childhood workforce and families.
