About This Training:
The Virginia Oral Health Coalition and the Virginia Department of Health are offering this course for family educators, nurses, family support workers, community health workers, and associated staff from any home visiting or family education program serving pregnant women; families with infants, toddlers, and school age children; and families of children with special health care needs. The training will provide crucial information necessary to address the ‘silent epidemic’ of dental disease. Participants will learn the most current evidence-based information about basic oral health care and oral disease prevention.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the connection between oral health and overall health for young children and identify diseases linked to poor dental care.
  • Identify and share at least one key oral health message to encourage others to prevent or control the epidemic of dental disease.
  • Identify and share at least one prevention strategy for good oral health in children with disabilities.

There is no cost to attend. Seating is limited; pre-registration is requested by Friday, October 26.
