Action Points

  • Explain that among the myriad health problems faced by many Native Americans is poor oral health, based on a study showing that 90% of residents of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota had at least one decayed tooth.
  • Note that more than two-thirds of the adults had some degree of peridontal disease.
