CDC, AAP Release Oral Health Toolkit Aimed at Pregnant Women and Young Children

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently released Project Tiny Teeth, an oral health toolkit for medical and dental providers who care for pregnant women and young children. These materials are intended to help raise awareness about the importance of oral health as part of prenatal care and support clinicians in talking with pregnant women about their oral health and begin planning for the future oral health of their child.

The Tiny Teeth toolkit, which includes brochures, posters, infographics, and videos, is available here. The CDC also released a Pregnancy and Oral Health feature available here.
