The US Surgeon General views the oral health of children as a significant
public health issue. A Surgeon General's Report on Oral Health has been
commissioned that will feature children's issues. Dr. Satcher, the US
Surgeon General, has also scheduled a Surgeon General's Workshop and
a Surgeon General's Conference to bring attention to the impact of oral
health on children's overall health and wellbeing, and to promote action
steps to eliminate disparities in children's oral health. This child
health problem is everyone's problem so join us for the Surgeon General's
Conference "Face of a Child" on June 12-13, 2000 in Washington, DC.
We'd like you to be as serious as Dr. Satcher about children and their
oral health so that all children can smile.
