Information for Prenatal and Dental Providers

Good oral health is important for a healthy pregnancy. You as a provider, are often the “first line” in assessing a pregnant woman’s oral health. You can help identify problems, provide referrals, and reinforce good oral health habits. The Smiles for Moms and Babies (SMB) program aims to prevent oral disease in pregnant women and babies. It highlights the importance of oral care before, during, and after pregnancy.
