#Maryland: @MDAC01 offers list of #oralhealth books for kids

27 Jun


The Maryland Dental Action Coalition (MDAC) has released a list of 22 recommended children’s books on oral health. The coalition said the books will support increased access to oral health information for children, families, and health professionals.

Books on the list include The Tooth Book by Dr. Seuss and The Berenstain Bears Visit the Dentist, in addition to numerous others on teeth brushing, flossing, dental appointments, and healthy eating.

More than 50 oral health books were reviewed by a team that included a pediatric dentist, a school nurse, a pediatric nurse practitioner, an early childhood teacher, a dental hygienist, dental and dental hygiene students, library professionals, and health education specialists.

“This project was especially rich because of its collaborative process,” Katy Battani, health education coordinator for MDAC, said in a release. “The diverse team of professionals offered various perspectives which allowed for a well-rounded assessment of each book reviewed.”
