Oral Health Care for the Pregnant Pediatric Dental Patient

Purpose

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD), as the oral health advocate for infants, children, adolescents, and persons with special needs, recognizes that adolescent pregnancy remains a significant social and health issue in the U.S. These recommendations are intended to address management of oral health care particular to the pregnant adolescent rather than provide specific treatment recommendations for oral conditions.
