Healthy Mouths for You and Your Baby Video

"Healthy Mouths for You and Your Baby" is a 12-minute video aimed at educating mothers on good oral health practices for themselves and their families. The video addresses a gap in oral care knowledge that exists among the public, especially in low-income families, and will be used by community based health clinics and WIC clinics in conjunction with the Maryland statewide campaign "Healthy Teeth, Healthy Kids." The Center produced the video with funding from the DentaQuest Foundation.
