dear dr. siegel,
an often forgotten aspect of a potential negative impact to the neurodevelopment of an infant/toddler is their oral health.
Far too many are suffering from untreated early childhood caries-dental decay- with resultant chronic toothaches,abscesses,sleep deprivation,malnutrition etc.
28%of children5 and younger of all USA children have some dental caries and 23% of those never get treatment(cdc data).

So when you ask about brushing your brain,I thought I that you needed to become aware of this serious health issue.
