Media Advisory - Children's teeth are rotting. Do we need fluoride back in our water supply? The School of Public Policy to release new paper about this growing health problem

CALGARY, April 7, 2016 /CNW/ - Early Childhood Caries (ECC, formerly called "baby bottle decay") is a serious disease that is about much more than cavities on baby teeth. In Canada, it is a growing public health problem with adverse long-term effects on children's physical, emotional and intellectual well-being and a needless drain on costs in the public health-care system.

And the problem is getting worse. 

Media are invited to join co-author Jennifer Zwicker and dental expert Dr. Leonard Smith at a media conference for the release of new research on this growing problem. 

WHAT:                       

Press conference to release briefing paper "It's Not Just About Baby Teeth: Preventing Early Childhood Caries"

WHEN:                       

Friday, April 8, 2016, 10 a.m. mountain

WHERE:                      

Nexen room, 5th floor, 906 -8th Ave. S.W., Calgary, AB
