It is possible for a dentist to call up child services if they suspect a parent is neglecting their child’s oral care. Now with that being said, we don’t know how many of these cases have happened here in the U.S., but apparently they’re happening up in Canada. Regardless, parents are encouraged to take their kids to the dentist on a regular basis here in the states . . . but c’mon, what kind of parent doesn’t regularly take their child to the dentist anyway?
