981 Days ago

Routine dental checkups are instrumental in good health for children.

Topeka, KS, Oct. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Access to affordable dental services for children continues to be an under met need in the United States. Lower-income and minority children are far less likely to have routine dental checkups and suffer disproportionate rates of tooth decay with 80 percent of cavities in permanent teeth impacting just 25 percent of U.S. children. This is why Adventure Dental & Vision, a leading provider of high-quality dental and vision care for children in Topeka, is hosting a Dental Day in partnership with United Healthcare on October 24th.

“As tooth decay continues to be among the most common chronic diseases to impact children in the U.S., outreach events like this are imperative to bringing dental care education to local communities and increasing access to preventable care.” says Janelle Shumaker, Director of Community Outreach at Adventure Dental and Vision.

Through this event, Adventure Dental & Vision Center along with United Healthcare, will provide access to comprehensive dental care as well as other health and wellness resources.
