In 2015, 39% of American parents report missing work due to their children’s oral health issues, according to a survey of working parents from not-for-profit dental association Delta Dental.

An even bigger percentage, 45%, missed at least part of a work day for this reason.

With kids back in school, the survey suggests that oral health issues result in not just missed work for the parents, but missed school for children.

Delta Dental advises parents that if they missed getting a checkup for their child during the summer, they should make it a priority at the start of the school year.

Now that summer’s over, parents can at least be proactive by getting their kids into the dentist for a check-up. Find out more at www.deltadental.com.
