Get The Facts

A silent epidemic in Texas

Dental caries is the most prevalent disease in children in the state of Texas. In fact, the Texas Health Institute has labeled oral health a “silent epidemic,” with 81% of third graders having experienced dental caries. According to a metastudy conducted by JADA, poor oral health has been “significantly associated with increased odds of poor academic performance.” While Texas has made great strides in improving the oral health of our children, a significant need remains, particularly for economically disadvantaged children.

A lack of providers

Austin has just one pediatric dentist per 7,500 children, a ratio that is skewed by the high number of providers practicing near the city center. The ratio of pediatric dental providers drops significantly as distance from the city center is increased. Studies have shown that there is a significant shortage of pediatric dentists in rural and exurban areas. 

"In a 2017 analysis, Texas ranked 44th for rural access to dental care" (Vital Record, Texas A&M August 29, 2016).

The disadvantaged students in rural Texas

Compounding this issue are the facts that income levels drop and socioeconomic disadvantages increase as distance from the city center increases. For example, the percentage of economically disadvantaged students averages 60.24% in the state of Texas; in the San Marcos CISD, that percentage increases to 74%. There are currently over 7,800 economically disadvantaged students enrolled in just the Hays and San Marcos CISD elementary schools alone.

A mobile solution

Through the use of our mobile dental clinic, community outreach, and teledentistry, Kids Tooth Team Outreach plans to become a pediatric dental home for hundreds of children who would otherwise lack access to specialty oral health care. In doing so, we’ll set them up for a lifetime of success through improved oral and overall health and wellbeing.
