Dr. Thomas Grams gave up his practice in Colorado to give free dental care to impoverished children in Nepal and Afghanistan. He was killed Thursday, August 5th, along with 9 other members of a medical team by the Taliban. Our heart goes out to the friends and families of these courageous heros. Please read Dr. Grams incredible story:

Today most American children enjoy excellent oral health, but a significant subset suffers a high level of oral disease. The most advanced disease is found primarily among children living in poverty, some racial/ethnic minority populations, disabled children, and children with HIV infection.


Tooth decay (dental caries) affects children more than any other chronic infectious disease. Untreated tooth decay causes pain and infections that may lead to problems; such as eating, speaking, playing, and learning. The good news is that tooth decay and other oral diseases that can affect children are preventable.
