At least 3 out of 5 children suffer from dental cavities
Tooth decay is the world's #1 most widespread disease
Toothache is the #1 reason that children miss school
The easiest way to defeat tooth decay is by brushing twice a day.
Brushing day and night with a fluoride toothpaste can reduce tooth decay by up to 50%.
Educating children about this at an early age helps to build good toothbrushing habits for life.
