Healthy Mouth Healthy Child (HMHC) is committed to the preventative healthcare of children starting in infancy. The mission of HMHC is the elimination of the most common, chronic infectious disease in children between 2-5 years of age in North America; early childhood caries.
Our desire is to empower parents through education on how to optimally care for their children and give them the best beginnings of a healthy life, beginning at birth. We need the community to engage in changing the way we think of baby teeth and how significant their impact is on overall health. The mouth is the gateway to the body. For our whole self to be healthy, the mouth has to be healthy.
