The New Clinical Challenge: Oral Systemic Health During Pregnancy AND Why it Matters
Oral health is key to overall health and well-being of pregnant women and their babies. The exciting role of midwives in promoting oral health during pregnancy and preventing early childhood caries (ECC) in their newborns will be emphasized. Clinical competencies related to oral health assessment, oral health literacy, oral health promotion interventions, and collaborative partnerships with interprofessional community colleagues will be discussed. Strategies for integrating oral health competencies in midwifery program curricula, including the free Smiles for Life modules, will be presented.
