Update on July 13, 2012

Thanks for signing the petition! For those of you keen to find out more about the specific issues chipping away at our nation’s dental health system, PBS Frontline provides many online resources (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/dollars-and-dentists/) following their recent investigation into the dental crisis. Bill Calnon (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/health-science-technology/dollars-and-dentists/dr-bill-calnon-why-dentistry-needs-more-prevention-not-more-treaters/), president of the American Dental Association, names lack of education as the largest challenge facing the nation's deteriorating oral health. Dental diseases are mostly preventable if people know to practice smart oral health care, like not drinking too much soda or maintaining a diet high in corn syrup-based products.

Together we can ensure that America stays red, blue, and pearly white! Keep inviting your friends (http://www.causes.com/causes/621655-health-and-wellness/actions/1664392?open_inviter=true&utm_source=HealthDentalCrisisWeeklyEmail&utm_medium=Update%2BEmail%2B&utm_campaign=Health) to sign the petition pushing for new, comprehensive legislation to revamp America's dental care system!
