Dental Hygiene: 3 Hr. CEU: Womb to Grow: Modern Health for Prenatal to Preschool Patients
Your dental practice may not routinely treat prenatal or pediatric patients, but everyone has a role wherever possible in providing mothers and children the healthiest start possible.
The U.S. Surgeon General states that dental caries in our pediatric population is one of the most serious health concerns in this country. Research suggests that pregnancy can be one of the most motivating times for parents to change habits. Therefore, it is an ideal time to begin counseling the parent about the benefits of oral health. Statistics show that if parents learn to make oral health a priority for themselves, their children are more likely to inherit this awareness.
This evidence-based seminar nurtures your knowledge of prenatal and pediatric oral health, reviewing the needs of the pregnant patient, emphasizing the establishment of a dental home. It also provides resources on how to integrate a formalized risk assessment model and new strategies to implement that assessment.
