I-Smile™ is a statewide program connecting children and families with dental, medical and community resources to ensure a lifetime of health and wellness. Dental decay is the most common chronic illness among children and can cause difficulty learning, speaking and eating. I-Smile™ program staff provide preventive dental services at WIC clinics across Iowa, in order to prevent dental decay and establish good oral hygiene habits for young children. An oral health survey was completed during the summer of 2019 using I-SmileTM program data from screenings of WIC-enrolled children.
