Although we live in one of the more health conscious states in the United States, at least 144,300 children are affected by tooth decay each year.
In Washington state, Hispanic and Alaskan native children have a 50 percent higher rate of tooth decay compared to white children. While the state is working hard to develop programs and policies to advance children’s health, the best way to eliminate oral health disparities is to ensure all children get their regular preventive care treatment.
