Dental Care for Infants

Course Number: 387


The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recognizes that education, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment are the components necessary to maintain optimal oral health for infants. The goals of infant oral care are to decrease the likelihood that the child will experience ECC, decrease the amount of caries causing bacteria or delay transmission, manage oral habits, and identify a dental home.
