AAP Protect Tiny Teeth Implementation Project Launched

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), developed the “Protect Tiny Teeth Toolkit” to assist pediatric providers to address oral health during routine, non-urgent pediatric and prenatal visits. The AAP invites pediatric providers to participate in a 7-month quality improvement project to assess pediatric providers’ ability to screen, counsel, and refer children to a dental home using the toolkit and a learning collaborative led by the Project Advisory Committee. Practices will create a plan for implementing Protect Tiny Teeth tools in practice, identify a measurable goal, track, and report outcomes. Participating practices will be compensated $4,000 to defray costs and will be provided with the necessary materials. Applications are due by November 30th.
