Tooth decay is the number one chronic disease affecting children. It’s also the leading cause of missed school days. When lower-income children get dental decay, it doesn’t just cause immense pain and cost thousands of dollars. It’s distracting while they’re in school, and it leads to missed school days, lower test scores, and less opportunity later in life. We should be doing everything we can to prevent this from happening, and there’s a solution. Community water fluoridation can reduce childhood dental decay by 25%. This May, we’re voting #YesForKids on 26-151
