Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 857889037X, Hardcover)Improving the oral health of children requires a public health approach that moves beyond conventional dental health education. Written by experts in dental public health and pediatric dentistry, this evidence-based book examines several approaches to improving pediatric oral health and explains what strategies work and why. The authors advocate for a new model of complementary actions, including the establishment of working partnerships with the relevant agencies and sectors and a focus on eliminating risk factors and their social determinants. This book outlines practical strategies for prevention and measurement of common dental problems among children, including dental caries, periodontal disease, traumatic dental injury, and malocclusion. Practical direction is given on creating supportive environments, building healthy public policies, strengthening community action, and re-orienting health services.
