AAPD Reference Manual

The Reference Manual of Pediatric Dentistry is intended to encourage a diverse audience to provide the highest possible level of care to children. This audience includes, but is not limited to: pediatric dentists, general dental practitioners and other dental specialists, physicians and other health care providers, government agencies and health care policy makers, individuals interested in the oral health of children.

The Reference Manual of Pediatric Dentistry is divided into five sections: (1) definitions, (2) oral health policies, (3) recommendations, (4) endorsements, and (5) resources. Oral health policies are statements relating to AAPD positions on various public health issues. Recommendations are developed to assist the dental provider in making decisions concerning patient care. This section has two subcategories, clinical practice guidelines and best practices, distinguished by the methodology employed to develop the recommendations. Adherence to the recommendations increases the probability of a favorable practice outcome and decreases the likelihood of an unfavorable practice outcome. The endorsements section includes clinical recommendations relevant to the practice of pediatric dentistry that have been developed by other organizations with recognized expertise and adopted by the AAPD. Resources contains supplemental information to be used as a quick reference when more detailed information is not readily accessible, as well as clinical forms offered to facilitate excellence in practice. Proper utilization of the AAPD Reference Manual necessitates recognizing the distinction between standards and recommendations. Although there are certain instances within the recommendations where a specific action is mandatory, the AAPD Reference Manual is not intended nor should it be construed to be either a standard of care or a scope of practice document. The AAPD Reference Manual contains recommendations for care that could be modified to fit individual patient needs based on the patient, the practitioner, the health care setting, and other factors.
