Oral health has long been a problem on the reservation:
- Native Americans suffer from the poorest oral health of any population in the U.S.
- 2.4 million Native Americans suffer from poor oral health because of a lack of available dentists
- Preschool-aged Native American children had four times more cases of untreated tooth decay than white children — 43% vs 11%
- 40% of children and nearly 60% of adults on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota suffer from moderate to urgent dental needs
You can help us reach our goal of providing 8,000 Native Elders and children across 6 states with Dental Hygiene Kits packed with toothbrushes, toothpaste, dental floss, and mouthwash!
