Event Details

Approximately one out of three 2- to 5-year-old children in the United States has experienced caries (tooth decay). The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry provides recommendations for preventive strategies, and recognizes that early childhood oral health is a critically important foundation for a lifetime free from preventable oral disease.    Combining science-based oral health education with behaviorally-based parenting strategies is the innovation of Be Ready to Smile.

This free workshop provides professional development training for Parenting Educators  in oral health education for parents of young children.  Completion of one workshop qualifies Parenting Educators to integrate oral health education sessions into their parenting series. Dental Health hygiene kits and books will be provided at no cost for all parents in the Fall, 2019 parenting class taught by a trained Parenting Educator. Space is limited.
