My wife is a dental assistant. Today she had to go to a seminar on recognizing signs of child abuse. Ok. Seams obvious. Bruises, bumps etc. Whatever small boys get these on their own as well. But nope. It's about teeth that aren't taken care of. Kids who never go to the dentist. But finally do. Aren't you discouraging finally going when it's bad. How to tell if it's neglect. I don't recall ever going before I met my wife. I was 18. Didn't mean I was neglected. Time for someone to mind their own business. Bad teeth =neglect? Doubtful. Heck half my friends in perry County will be in jail. It's just a matter of priorities.
