School children have a lot on their plate, when it comes to things like tests and homework. But on top of that, many children also have to deal with dental problems and sometimes it's severe. Doctors say many children of lower income families seldom go to the dentist, and others never have.

Other health experts say having more dentists in rural areas can also help.
