Welcome to A Health Professional’s Guide to Pediatric Oral Health Management, a series of seven modules designed to assist health professionals in managing the oral health of infants and young children.

These modules provide health professionals with information to help them prevent oral diseases, which still afflict many U.S. children, especially children from families with low incomes, children in certain minority groups, and children with special health care needs. The modules assist health professionals in performing an oral screening to identify infants and children at increased risk for oral health problems, offering referrals to oral health professionals, and providing parents with anticipatory guidance.
