Oral Health Education for Pregnant Women and New Parents

These programs are a partnership between local pediatricians, WIC, and obstetric offices with the goal of reaching out to pregnant women and new mothers (and their children) to provide oral health education and training sessions.  More than 1,000 toothbrushes have been provided to children through the WIC program.  In addition, two oral health education videos designed to (1) educate women about the importance of their oral health during pregnancy and (2) educate parents about caring for their young child's oral health were produced and distributed through WIC, Head Start and other appropriate venues.
