Academy of Pediatrics Solicits Input into Oral Health Direction

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Section on Oral Health is asking stakeholders to complete a survey on the effectiveness of oral health initiatives/Campaign for Dental Health, priorities for future directions, and resources needed to improve management of oral health promotion, disease prevention, and early childhood caries. The AAP seeks to strengthen oral health initiatives:

  1.  In the wake of the pandemic.
  2. As part of the AAP Equity Agenda
  3. Because children continue to see a pediatric or primary care provider or other trusted community member long before they see a dental professional and during the years in which prevention of dental disease is optimal.

The survey deadline is July 15.
