In 2016, over ~20% of children have untreated dental caries (tooth decay) according to the CDC. That problem is worsened by the difficulty in brushing teeth after lunch at school. Bad non-brushing habits can carry over into adulthood, too. Only 50% of adults brush their teeth twice a day according to the American Dental Association. We believe this is a serious and underrepresented issue. We believe that schools should teach children how to care for their teeth.
