            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Worth County, Adam D. Sauer, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED ON BOTH APPEALS.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Greer and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Schumacher, J.  (8 pages)

            A mother and father appeal the juvenile court decision finding their children were in need of assistance (CINA).  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the juvenile court properly determined the children should be adjudicated CINA.  The parents were not adequately addressing the children’s medical, dental, and educational needs.  The children could not be returned to the parents’ care at the time of the dispositional hearing.  We concur in the court’s placement of the children.  We affirm the decision of the juvenile court.
