Early Childhood Oral Health coalesces all important information related to?this important topic?in a comprehensive reference for students, academics, and practioners. In addition to?the latest?information about preventing?childhood caries, other topics include public health approaches to managing caries worldwide, implementation of new prevention programs, fluoride regimens, and new technologies in caries risk assessment.
