Healthy Smiles from the Start

Program Overview

Healthy Smiles from the Start is a suite of patient education materials developed by the Alliance of the American Dental Association to help parents understand the importance of oral health for pregnant women and babies.

The Missouri Dental Association in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services Oral Health Program is pleased to provide this new, multifaceted prenatal and postnatal dental health care education program for mothers and caregivers.

Created to address the nation's growing dental health issues during pregnancy and throughout early childhood, Healthy Smiles from the Start is engaging and helpful information about how and why to make mouth-healthy habits a priority for everyone in the family.
