Campaign for Children's Oral Health

Each day in the United States, 2,300 kids will try their first cigarette and another 350 will become daily smokers.

For our 2018 Campaign for Children's Oral Health, Oral Health America (OHA) is working to build support for policies that protect youth from risky tobacco use and legislation that keeps baseball fields tobacco free. We hope to set a positive example for America's young people and discourage them from a lifetime of nicotine addiction.

Help us strike out youth tobacco use and improve the oral health of every American, especially children.
