More than two-thirds of children will have at least one cavity before their 19th birthday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports. While tooth decay remains one of the most common health problems in children, it is also the most preventable, experts say. "With proper education and regular dentist appointments, children can go their whole life without dental health problems," says LaVerne Johnson, dental assistant instructor at Everest College - Fort Worth South. Johnson, along with the other dental assistant instructors at the Everest campuses across Texas, understands the importance of maintaining good dental health. Johnson has a few tips on what children and parents can do to protect and strengthen their smiles for years to come.
