Introduction

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that caries is perhaps the most prevalent infectious disease in U.S children. By the time they reach kindergarten, more than 40% of children have caries. To prevent oral disease, preventive interventions must begin at infancy. This course will present to providers the importance of educating their adult patients on when they should begin bringing their children to the dental office for an oral exam and to begin a thorough prevention program that will establish measures to prevent diseases such as Early Childhood Caries (ECC).
