Kids Are Going Without Dental Care During The Pandemic
Children are missing out on preventative dental care including teeth cleaning and checkups during the pandemic, according to a new survey. Covid-19 is a barrier to getting kids the dental care they need, said a third of parents responding to the survey released by C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital National Poll on Children’s Health. Since the pandemic began, 40% of parents have avoided seeking care at all, citing concerns about infection, office closures and cost.
