Maternal, Infant and Adolescent Oral Health Program

Oral health is important across the life span beginning with perinatal oral health, as poor oral health has been linked to poor birth outcomes and tooth decay can be passed on to the newborn. Infants and toddlers are especially vulnerable to tooth decay due to feeding habits and poor oral hygiene. As a child grows into adolescents, new and emerging issues arise that can impact their oral health including oral cancers from vaping and the Human Papillomavirus (HPV).

Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease but it is preventable!
