Oral Health for Children with Special Healthcare Needs

This webinar is designed for caregivers, advocates, and providers of children with special health care needs. It will provide a general overview of the importance of daily mouth care and how you as caregivers can help. When your child has good oral health, it will improve the quality of both of your lives. Children with special health care needs are at great risk for dental diseases and many times they do not know how or are unable to care for their teeth. Caregivers can play a very important role in helping a person have good health, comfort, and hygiene. 

Certificates of Attendance are now available!
