Tooth decay is the number one chronic health disease among children and the leading cause of school absence in California. With dental problems, children's abilities to eat nutritiously, get adequate sleep, and remain attentive in class are greatly compromised.

Fortunately, dental problems are almost always preventable through regular checkups. School-based and dental clinic treatment programs help every student, including low-income children, receive a checkup by the first grade. Organizations such as the California Dental Association avidly promote the practice of consistent examinations and good dental hygiene to ensure the oral health of all of California's children.

Assemblymember Hayashi serves the 18th Assembly District, which includes San Leandro, Hayward, Dublin, most of Castro Valley and Pleasanton, and a portion of Oakland, as well as the unincorporated areas of Ashland, Cherryland, Sunol and San Lorenzo.
