Abstract

Disparities in children's oral health are an important and solvable health problem in the United States today. Many parts of the dental and public health communities are actively engaged in efforts aimed at addressing these disparities. Much progress has been made in explicating the issues, developing the scientific and clinical knowledge base needed for primary prevention and treatment, and beginning the development of new training and community-based approaches. But much more is still needed, and there is a great deal that the pediatric community can do to help.
