Childhood Tooth Decay

EDM number 100 in 2017-19, proposed by Steve McCabe on 29/06/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families, Health education and preventive medicine and Health services.

That this House notes with concern that a quarter of five-year olds in England have tooth decay; further notes that tooth decay is the leading cause of hospital admissions for five to nine-year olds, despite being largely preventable, with tens of thousands of children undergoing general anaesthesia for tooth extractions every year; recognises that providing oral health education, improving access to dental services and reducing levels of sugar consumption are important steps in tackling childhood tooth decay across the UK; is encouraged by the success of oral health improvement programmes, such as Childsmile in Scotland and Designed to Smile in Wales; and calls on the Government to take concerted action to address the epidemic of childhood tooth decay.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
