U.S. earns a C on oral health report card

Jan. 29, 2002
States received some of their lowest grades in the areas of prevention and access to care.

"Our report card shows the nation needs to pay more attention to oral health," said Robert Klaus, Oral Health America President. "We can make great strides in improving oral health by implementing tested preventive measures and by ensuring more people see an oral health professional on a regular basis."

February is National Children's Dental Health Month -- and the Ohio Dental Association encourages parents and others who care for children to help ensure a lifetime of good oral health for our children.
