DESCRIPTION: Tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease. This critical problem can best be addressed through an integration of medical and dental services. The American Dental Association, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that a child’s first dental visit be at or before age one. This first visit provides a foundation for prevention through education. Many parents, regardless of educational level, and many providers do not realize the importance of early dental visits.
