Moms want to know how to keep themselves and their babies happy and healthy — that’s why they come to you for guidance.

Toolkit for Healthcare Professionals

This toolkit contains materials for both patient outreach and education around oral health as well as clinical resources to help integrate oral health into your practice. The toolkit has four waiting room posters, three infographics, one brochure, dental referral forms, a conversation guide, an oral health screener, and an integration workflow. 

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.

Each material can be downloaded separately below.
