The Maryland Department of Health’s Office of Oral Health has released Oral Health Care During Pregnancy: Practice Guidance for Maryland’s Prenatal and Dental Providers, a guide for prenatal and dental providers to support quality oral health care delivery to pregnant women in Maryland.
The guide, developed by an Interprofessional steering committee representing several state organizations and health professions, includes up-to-date, evidence-based information and useful resources, including clinical images, a dental pharmacology chart, a dental referral form, and educational materials for pregnant women.
Visit our guide to learn more about dental health books recommended for children under the age of seven. This list was created by the collaborative efforts of the Health Sciences & Human Services Library (HS/HSL) and the Maryland Dental Action Coalition (MDAC) who convened an interprofessional team to review the books. The book list will serve to increase access of oral health information to children and families, and provide guidance to those who purchase and utilize children's books.
All the books are available for check-out from the Library with a UMB ID card. Others can request the books using Interlibrary Loan or check for availability at your local public library.
