DPH: Parents and Caregivers
Home by One

Parents and Caregivers

 
Parents and Caregivers are extremely important as their children's first teachers.  Learn how to keep your child's mouth healthy starting at birth.  Make a well-baby dental visit    (Spanish version) for your child by age one and start regular dental visits with a dental home. 
 
 
Did you know?
 
  Oral disease can begin as soon as teeth erupt.
 
  Oral health is important for overall health. 
 
  Oral disease can be prevented.
 
  If you are pregnant, ask your doctor about caring for your mouth during
  pregnancy.
 
At your  next WIC  appointment, ask for information on how to care for your infant's mouth.
