Teethsavers International

Dr. Jack Rudd, a retired West Texas Dentist, is on a mission to save the teeth of African children, specifically the children of Zambia. He says Zambia has 17 dentists employed by the government to serve a population of more than 10 million. So, Dr. Rudd has established a non-profit organization called "Teethsaveers international". It's primary focus is to teach the mothers in Zambia how to help preserve their children's teeth by taking care of that 6 year molar. Why is the 6 year molar so important? Dr. Rudd says if it falls out, it can lead to digestive and other medical problems, even shortening the life span of the person.
