U.P Friendly Smile Fund
|What is the U.P. Friendly Smile Fund?|
The U.P Friendly Smile Fund Makes a Healthy Smile More Affordable!
Did you know that approximately 78% of Americans have had at least 1 cavity by the age of 17? Also, more than 1 in 4 (27%) adults in the United States has untreated tooth decay. According to the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), nearly half (about 46%) of all adults in America aged 30 years or older show signs of gum disease, and severe gum disease affects about 9% of adults. If any of these numbers relate to you or someone you love, the Superior Health Foundation (SHF) would like to turn that frown around.
