Utah kids unequally affected by dental problems

A recent report by the Utah Department of Health, Oral Health Program shows that in general, Utah kids have healthier teeth than they did five years ago.  However, concerning health disparities still exist:
  • Non-White children are more likely to have cavities than White children.
  • Many areas of the state still lack access to fluoridated water.
  • Hispanic children are more likely to drink unfluoridated bottled water, rather than fluoridated tap water.
for more information, see the complete report.
