KID'S DENTAL HEALTH ROUND-UP AND RESOURCES

February is National Children's Dental Health Month. This month-long national health observance, promoted by the ADA, brings together thousands of dedicated professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers, and many others.

Here at CAFF, we are big enthusiasts of the oral-systemic connection – the idea that oral health is inseparable from overall well-being. Our main focus is providing education and support for parents, so we've consolidated some of the wonderful resources out there for parents on this topic.


KID'S DENTAL HEALTH: BOOK RESOURCES


There is quite a bit out there on the subject of childhood airway disease prevention. To help guide your reading research, we've pulled together our list of recommended books.

These books are written by some of the top medical professionals and cover everything from breathing, diet, and dental symptoms and guidance on how to improve these conditions. They are great resources for professionals as well, as they further support the idea that pediatricians and pediatric dentists should work in conjunction with children's overall health management:
