OAK BROOK, Ill., April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- While most American adults report an increase in their well-being this year compared to last, it's the nation's parents who are reporting the highest gains. Twenty-four percent of U.S. parents rate their overall well-being as excellent in 2017, compared to 14 percent in 2015, per a recent Delta Dental survey. And, if people are taking care of their oral health, chances are their outlook on wellbeing is even better.
The survey broke down Americans' views on their well-being by age, gender, region and marital status and delivered some surprising findings about the role oral health plays:
