WWHF Provides Webinar on Perinatal Oral Health

WWHF - Perinatal Oral Health Webinar - 12.30.2015 1

Oral Health and Pregnancy

Oral health is critical at any time in a person’s life, but it can be especially important during pregnancy. Unfortunately, many pregnant women ignore oral health issues, or are unaware of what additional risks they should be alert to at this critical point in their lives.

 Webinar on Oral Health

To help address this issue, in late December the Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation organized a webinar for the healthcare providers we partner with through our First Breath, My Baby & Me and GrapeVine Programs. During this presentation, Dr. Kevin DeGroot, DDS, addressed the connections that exist between oral health, pregnancy, and other health concerns. Dr. DeGroot also offered practical suggestions on ways for prenatal care providers to start the conversation about this important issue.

Thank You!

We want to extend a sincere thanks to Dr. DeGroot for sharing his time and expertise with us. We also wanted to send a thanks to Delta Dental for providing a grant which has made educational opportunities like this presentation possible. For those interested in viewing this presentation, an archived version can be found on our YouTube channel.
