Health professionals are on the frontlines of dental care. Use these resources to assist your patients on the road to better dental care.

Dental caries is an infectious disease and primary care clinics can play a key role in preventing its spread among its youngest patients.

3 minutes per patient and any trained member of your medical clinic staff is all it takes.
