From Aug. 21:
It might look a little odd to see a baby laid back in a dental chair for a routine examination. But new research and guidelines put forth by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) would like to see more of this in dental practices across the country. The AAPD released research this month that asserts there may be risk factors in found in a child's medical record that are helpful for predicting risk for cavities. Well, OK. But what does that really mean? And why does it matter?
