Southeastern Colorado AHEC offers a "Cavities Get Around" campaign program as an initiative of the Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation to educate Colorado families about the importance of caring for baby teeth, protecting the enamel on baby teeth, limiting sugary drinks and the importance of giving children only water between meals and at bedtime.


A core belief is that dental disease is 100% preventable. Efforts to improve oral health will result in a healthier Colorado overall.
