One of the many areas your non-profit donation to FCCY can provide assistance is funding dental care for a child in foster care. Dental care is essential to the overall health of a child. With your gracious donation, our foster care children will experience this care…

Routine Check-Ups

No matter the age of the child – whether just receiving the first few teeth or nearly an adult – a visit to a dentist is a good idea at least once per year, although twice per year is considered good practice. At these check-ups, children will receive a thorough cleaning and analysis from the dentist to check for cavities and overall oral health.

Proper Oral Hygiene Habits

These habits may be more beneficial in the long run than the routine check-ups each year. If you don’t have good oral hygiene habits yet see a dentist twice per year, those visits will be unpleasant as children are more likely to encounter problems during these visits due to inactive oral care. Therefore, by instructing children how to properly care for teeth at a young age sets him or her up for a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Self-Confidence

Many people neglect oral hygiene, yet we know its importance. Quality oral hygiene offers a bright and beautiful smile. It has been scientifically proven that smiling improves the mood. If you have healthy, beautiful teeth, you are more likely to have more self-confidence. With more self-confidence, children are more likely to be adventurous and hardworking. Self-confidence leads to success; therefore, good oral hygiene can lead to success.
