The #1 Reason Kids Miss School:


It's true.

Kids are missing over 51 MILLION hours of school each year (no) thanks to tooth troubles.

At the Happy Tooth Foundation (HTF), we're on a mission to provide access, services, and education to the families who need it most. And most importantly, create a world where nothing stands in the way of a smile.

Let's keep kids in the game
