WA Children Teeth Dental Alarm

WA Children Teeth Dental Alarm: Australia is mostly fluoridated:

"dental decay among the pre-school group was common, with the city's six paediatric dentists each operating on children under anaesthetic three times a week.

'On little pre-schoolers we do little crowns and fillings, extract teeth and do all that sort of stuff,' Dr Gregory said.

'I probably do about six children a week and these are extensive cases where children have eight to 10 cavities.'"
