Oral Health Promotion in Infants and Children: Models and Long-Term Effectiveness

Description

The concepts of anticipatory guidance, dental home, and the year one dental visit in the context of oral health in children are slowly permeating the dental community. The previous principles are now taught in dental schools, especially at the graduate level in specialty pediatric dentistry programs. Various dental associations, societies, and advocacy bodies have adopted those principles and advocated for them to varying degrees. While the value of oral health promotion in infants and young children is widely recognized, there is a diversity of approaches. To date, a comprehensive overview of the various models, best practices, and benchmarks for assessing their effectiveness has not been undertaken.

We invite dental and nondental clinicians, health promoters, and investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that document practices, experiences, and evaluation of outcomes related to oral health promotion in infants and young children. We are particularly interested in articles that can document the long-term effectiveness of their oral health promotion activities or models with clearly identifiable clinical outcomes. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Models for infant and child oral health promotion
  • Description of health promoters and the target populations
  • Scope of health promotion activities
  • Benchmarks for determining the effectiveness of the programs
  • Logistics, economics, and challenges related to oral health promotion in young children
  • Policies regarding infant and child oral health promotion
  • Research proposals for assessing the effectiveness of oral health promotion in children
