“Although dental caries (tooth decay) is largely preventable, it remains the most
common chronic disease of children aged 6 to 11 years (25%), and adolescents
aged 12 to 19 years (59%). Tooth decay is four times more common than asthma
among adolescents aged 14 to 17 years (15%).”  http://tinyurl.com/p95274c
