Dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease with more than 16 million kids suffering from untreated tooth decay in the U.S. Fortunately, you can take action to start the process of preventing dental pain and disease.

To address this nation-wide threat to children’s health, the American Association of Pediatric Dentistry has launched the Monster-Free Mouths Movement, an educational campaign to arm parents and caregivers with important tools and information to help fight tooth decay, also known as the Mouth Monsters.

You can join the Monster-Free Mouths Movement and keep your child’s mouth free of creatures like Ginger Bite-Us, Tartar the Terrible and Tooth D.K. Learn more about this terrifying trio and find out how to banish your child’s mouth monsters for good. The Parents Tip Sheet, available for download, has helpful pointers on communicating good oral health to your little ones.
