Newly published AAP primer supports dental-medical collaboration

February 26, 2020

Dentists now have a new resource they can use to work with their physician colleagues to improve oral health. The American Academy of Pediatrics developed an Oral Health Prevention Primer to help pediatricians and other medical professionals identify patients with oral health needs in their practice, collaborate with oral health allies and advocate to prevent dental disease.

Available by request, the resource is a finished PowerPoint presentation that introduces OHPP resources to pediatricians, primary care physicians and other health care providers who work with families. The presentation guides the user through an interactive presentation that takes 20 to 30 minutes. Dentists and other oral health professionals can use the presentation in coalition meetings and any professional or educational setting.

Dentists are encouraged to share this article and news of the new resource with their colleagues.

For more information, visit the Campaign for Dental Health website.

Request a copy of the OHPP presentation by completing a brief form.
