Guidelines on Oral Health During Pregnancy


In February 2010, the California Dental Association and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists published guidelines regarding oral health during pregnancy and early childhood. The document provides an evidence-based resource for health professionals on the treatment of oral disease in expectant mothers.

Dr. Clive Schneider-Friedman, a member of CDA’s Committee on Clinical and Scientific Affairs, highlighted these guidelines in Issue 3 of JCDA Express. “The guidelines provide valuable insight into current evidence-based literature on appropriate care and interventions that can dramatically improve the oral health of both mothers and babies,” wrote Dr. Schneider-Friedman.
