The Molars United Foundation, a registered Non-Profit, needs your help bringing education and resources to the underserved and those with special healthcare needs.
Underprivileged children, and those with special healthcare needs, lack the oral health education and resources to maintain good oral hygiene and health. Considering the fact that oral health directly impacts overall health and well-being, this is a very serious concern that needs immediate attention. Additionally, dental phobia plagues an astounding 30-40 million Americans, or 9-15% of the population, according to Colgate. Furthermore, "oral disease in children and adults is higher among poor and disadvantaged population groups" based on a World Health Organization study. More specifically, "60-90% of school children have dental cavities.” Lastly, “children with special healthcare needs are almost twice as likely to have unmet oral healthcare needs as their peers without special healthcare needs across all income levels.” The overwhelming statistics demonstrate how a lack of oral health education and resources leads to bad oral health, then later to more chronic health issues.

Mighty Molar has a special contribution to this cause. The “Molar in the Mirror” box set has proven to be a versatile, highly-effective aid with inspiring better oral health habits and alleviating dental phobia. It contains an illustrated book and Mighty Molar plush toy. Reading the book educates children and also gently desensitizes them to the whole dental experience before their dental appointments. The plush toy provides comfort for these children as they hold them tight during their visits to the dentist. Finally, hanging up on the mirror above the bathroom sink, Mighty Molar provides daily inspiration and excitement to keep brushing and maintaining good oral health!
Oral health directly impacts overall health and well-being! Thus, what started as Mighty Molar & Friends has grown and evolved into The Total Health Heroes. With heroes, villains, and supporting cartoon cast, we mix fun with awareness and education around the link between each health field and overall health.
