Oral Health

Current Situation- Good oral health is a key component to good physical health.  Those without dental issues are more likely to be able to eat nutritious foods such as fruits and vegetables.  Allen County information shows that those least likely to see a dentist include those with lower incomes (less than $25,000) and adults under the age of 30. (2014 Allen County Health Risk and Community Needs Assessment, Allen County Public Health)
