abstract
This pocket guide offers health professionals an overview of preventive oral health supervision for five developmental periods--pregnancy and postpartum, infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence. Although age groupings are designed to take advantage of naturally occurring milestones, many oral health issues cut across multiple developmental periods. The information presented in the pocket guide is intended as an overview rather than as a comprehensive description of pediatric oral health. The information does not prescribe a specific regimen of care but builds upon existing guidelines and treatment protocols such as those recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, and the American Dietetic Association.
