      This instructional package was designed for use by child health clinics and Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) clinics in Ohio. The package includes a notebook containing an educational flip chart for use in training sessions with parents and child care providers. It contains behavioral contracts to encourage parents to modify their behaviors at home with their young children to help prevent development of early childhood caries. The contracts are printed on the front and back of two distinct graphic shapes; one contains reminders to promote prevention, the other encourages intervention. The package also includes magnets that remind parents to take preventive steps, and stickers for use by clinic or program staff to mark medical records after parents have been trained. A subsequent version by the American Dental Hygienists' Association does not contain the magnets and stickers included in the original version. [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]

        This report considers the effect of Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Testing (EPSDT) program revisions on the provision of oral health care to children and adolescents covered by the program. The 1989 Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA '89) included oral health professionals as primary health providers under the terms of the original program. The introduction reviews the background of the EPSDT program and the OBRA '89 changes. The report then considers the feasibility of using dentists and dental hygienists as primary care providers, reviews the advantages of doing so, and recommends policy changes to increase the role of oral health providers in primary care.

          These program recommendations address prescribing dietary fluoride supplements (daily tablets, drops, or vitamin-fluoride combinations) for infants, children, and adolescents (from birth through age 16) who are not ingesting optimally fluoridated water. The recommendations are intended to conform to American Dental Association guidelines for fluoride supplementation. Topics include the benefits of appropriate prescribing and use of fluoride supplements to developing and erupting teeth, as well as the impact of excess fluoride ingestion (dental fluorosis). Visual representations (table and flow chart) are provided to assist health professionals in determining the fluoride content of water from various sources and the dosage of fluoride supplement needed.
