Children’s Dental Health

Did you know that dental decay is the most prevalent chronic childhood disease – 5 times more common than asthma. It is almost entirely preventable, with a few simple measures.  Here are some tips from the Cambridge Public Health Department’s Healthy Smiles program for keeping children’s teeth healthy:

  • Brush twice a day.
  • Drink tap water – not bottled water – to benefit from fluoride.
  • See your dentist twice a year.
