Little teeth, big smile: children visit dental

Staff Sgt. Kirsten Moss, 86th Dental Squadron oral preventative technician, prepares her patient, Channing Wray, for a dental checkup during Moss’s squadron’s “Little Teeth, Big Smile” event at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, Nov. 5, 2016. The event was a children-focused initiative to encourage parents to bring their children up to 10 years old to get their teeth checked or cleaned. According to the Center for Disease and Control, tooth decay is one of the most common chronic conditions of childhood in the United States. Untreated cavities can cause pain and infections that may lead to problems with eating, speaking, playing, and learning. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Lane T. Plummer)
