Preventing Dental Caries and Obesity in Children News
is a service of the National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center
to announce news and resources and connect the oral health and obesity-prevention communities. It was created in response to the Healthy Futures: Engaging the Oral Health Community in Childhood Obesity Prevention National Conference
, held November 3–4, 2016, in Washington, DC. Over 125 leaders from academia, professional associations and societies, coalitions, government agencies, the dental insurance industry, the dental trade industry, philanthropic organizations, and community programs met to discuss evidence-based recommendations and strategies that oral health professionals, oral-health- related organizations, and others can employ to prevent childhood obesity.
