Our "Health Literacy Hero"

By the CDHP team

Just yesterday, I was told that “oral health isn’t sexy.” We all get it. Here we are, trying to prevent tooth decay – the #1 chronic disease of early childhood! – and folks still think that baby teeth don’t matter.

It takes real talent to change the conversation. To keep it simple. To engage people unmoved by clinical evidence. (Fluoridation, anyone?) To help us tell human stories of oral health successes.

Our colleague Matt Jacob has those talents. Don’t take my word for it. Dr. Johnny Johnson of Florida nominated Matt as a “health literacy hero.” (October is Health Literacy Month.) 

Matt, we're glad you're here.
