Brush, Book, Bed

Brush, Book, Bed is a program developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to help promote good oral hygiene in children. Pediatricians are taking a more prominent role in oral hygiene because they are often visited more frequently than dentists. Also, there is a large disparity between oral health outcomes in children of color and low socioeconomic status. Children that may fit into these categories have visits with pediatricians but do not visit a dentist as often. There are serious consequences for tooth decay and gum disease for children.
