How are your kids doing in school?

Aside from the rare, true genius, most kids struggle with some aspect of school. Some kids are better at math and science, while others are budding Picassos or future Stephen Kings. Chances are your child is intuitively smart about certain subjects, and not so sure about others.

These days, we all know a child's education has a huge impact on his or her future. Education is directly tied to income. And income, as we all know, determines what we can afford in life.

As a loving parent, you want your kid to get the best education possible. You want them to have all the luxuries in life. It's safe to say that most parents would object to anyone or anything interfering with their child's opportunity to learn.

So maybe you'll find this next bit of information shocking: an estimated 51 million hours of school each year due to oral pain.1

Wow, that's a lot of missed opportunity for our future generations.

Are your kids learning to their full potential? Or is oral pain leaving your kids behind?
