In the U.S., tooth decay affects children more than any other chronic, infectious disease, and rates of untreated tooth decay are twice as high for children from low- or limited-income families compared with children from middle- or high-income families. Sharing Smiles Day allows Benevis dental homes and their care teams to connect with neighbors and educate them on the importance of daily brushing, flossing, and good nutrition for a happy, healthy smile. Over the past eight years, Benevis has provided dental relief to more than 3,000 patients across 13 U.S. states, thanks to the dedication of over 300 volunteers.
