The two most important things to teach and preach to your children are good health and education. That connection goes deep, former U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elder, MD is quoted saying, “You cannot educate a child who is not healthy and you cannot keep a child healthy who is not educated. Food for thought and body if you ask us.
A report last year, Oral Health and Learning (Oct 2013), made multiple connections between poor oral health and impaired learning. It shows how essential good health is to a healthy mind. Some of the finders were shocking.
So not only does good oral health lead to good learning habit but it also leads to great smiles! And who doesn’t love a great smile.
