This report of a workshop, held August 7-8, 1991 in Atlanta, Georgia, gives information on efforts in Region IV to address issues in the oral health of children and families within the Southeastern United States. The goals of the workshop were to review the oral health status of mothers and children, to develop strategies that would make oral health service a more integral part of the total health care system and to identify personnel, resources and methods crucial to implementing the strategies. Reports from the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee are included. The states' reports include the issues identified as problems, accomplishments, the personnel or organizations to be included, and the state's plan of action to address the issues.
