Moms want to know how to keep themselves and their babies happy and healthy — that’s why they come to you for guidance. This toolkit makes it easier than ever to help connect moms to the oral health answers they need, providing healthy tips to patients and conversation tactics to providers like you.

​Oral Hea​lth Toolkit Resources

These materials can be customized with your logo and displayed in health departments, clinics, prenatal classes, OB/GYN offices, or social media — just to name a few. They are designed to make your job – and your life – a bit easier, helping your patients better understand oral health and decisions around it. ​

Provider Toolkit

​​​​This toolkit has two waiting room posters, three infographics, and one brochure, which includes language you can use when answering patient questions about oral health. The brochure can also be used as a handout from providers to patients. 

Most states cover dental care under Medicaid during pregnancy. If your state is among them, you’ll find state-specific resources in the toolkit. If not, select “General” in the drop-down menu.
