September Workshop to Address Children’s Dental Disease

September Workshop to Address Children’s Dental Disease

The American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatric Dentists and American Academy of Pediatrics all recommend dental visits by a child’s first birthday, but tooth decay is still the most common chronic childhood disease.

The importance of screenings, participatory guidance, early intervention, and medical/dental collaboration will be discussed at September 29 conference at the IU School of Dentistry.

Dr. Jeff Rector, a pediatric dentist from Muncie, chairs the IDA’s new Age-One Dental Visits Subcommittee and is on the planning committee for the event.

“A child’s first dental visit provides a foundation for prevention through education,” said Dr. Rector. “But many parents, physicians and dentists do not realize the importance of early visits. We hope this day-long workshop will help change that.”

The program is recommended for physicians, medical and dental health care specialists, dentists, hygienists, nurses, social workers and early childhood educators. More information, including a complete program and online registration, can be found here.
