About the Artwork

“This picture was taken seconds after the loss of a baby tooth, one of the lower central incisors, now being replaced by a permanent tooth. It’s a good reminder that dental health is an important aspect of a child’s general health. One in four five-year-old children have tooth decay that affects, on average, three to four teeth. The majority of tooth decay goes untreated and impacts the overall well-being of both child and family.”

Jessica M. Ibarra is assistant professor of physiology at Dell Medical School at the University of Texas in Austin. She codirects the structure-and-function course for first-year medical students.
