Abstract

Significant oral health problems are observed in children with medically or physically compromised conditions. Because of their early contact with parents and infants, pediatricians can make a difference in the prevention of oral disease. This article outlines some of the problems and suggests early intervention in the pediatrician's office along with close cooperation with pediatric dentists to prevent, eliminate, or modify oral disease for these children.
