No more than 10 percent of Polish children boast a healthy smile. Medical activists sound the alarm as studies point to an overall poor state of Poles' teeth.
Warsaw-based Julia Squirrel Foundation points to a number of contributing factors, such as a lack of systemic preventive medical care for the youngest generation, and iinadequate access to state-funded medical treatment.
