The AAPD oral health DVD was produced through AAPD's Pediatric Oral Health Research and Policy Center, and developed in response to Head Start and dentist requests for easy to understand, culturally relevant and accurate information about children's teeth, and how to keep them healthy. AAPD highlighted up-to-date dental information and consulted with early childhood professionals to ensure that the information was presented in a format that was both educational and relevant to parents and caregivers, as well as for non-dental professionals.
The 28 minute DVD features 10 chapters focusing on the relationship between oral health and systemic health, how tooth decay happens, a Dental Home, the importance of fluoride, toothbrushing, a healthy diet, oral health and pregnancy, a child's first dental visit, making your child's dental visit a success, and the conclusion, which includes an overview of key points.
"This video is full of solid scientific information, brief enough to hold interest and visually grabbing," stated Dr. Paul S. Casamassimo, AAPD national spokesperson and Chief of Dentistry at Nationwide Children's Hospital and a Professor of Pediatric Dentistry at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry. "I would recommend this video to any parent or caregiver who is interested in learning about how to care for their children's teeth."
