The PACT online training curriculum is no longer available. The AAP Section on Oral Health is working to create new resources for child oral health online training that will cover many of the same topics covered in PACT. Educators can still use the content previously included in PACT available below as downloadable PowerPoint presentations to be given to medical students and pediatricians in training.
