AAPD Advocacy encourages pediatric oral health collaborations with Head Start programs at the federal, state and local levels in order to promote and obtain oral health care for Head Start children. As a result of a federal interagency agreement between the Head Start Bureau, Administration for Children and Families and Maternal and Child Health Bureau, the AAPD had actively worked with and advised the Head Start program on enhancing partnerships between Head Start and oral health specialties.
