This flip chart shows parents how to implement oral hygiene practices to prevent tooth decay in infants and children. Accompanied by photographs of Native American parents and children, the messages highlight basic oral health concepts. The flip chart is divided into two sections: the first covers the oral health of infants from birth to age 1; the second, children ages 2–5. Topics include early childhood caries prevention, the role of nutrition in oral health, and oral hygiene. The contents are also available as slides for use in presentations with larger groups. The flip chart was developed by the Indian Health Service, Head Start, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
