Poor Oral Health LInkied to Bad Grades

A recent study published by the American Journal of Public Health found a link between poor oral health and school performance.

The researchers matched the children’s oral health status to their academic achievement and attendance records. The study, scheduled to be published in the American Journal of Public Health, found children who reported having recent tooth pain were four times more likely to have a low grade point average — below the median GPA of 2.8 — when compared to children without oral pain.
