Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Weidman Sterling, a public health educator, and health writer/patient advocate Best-Boss cover everything parents need to know from pregnancy (good nutrition helps a baby develop healthy teeth) to young adulthood in this wide-ranging text. Noting that oral health is strongly linked to overall health, the authors cite the alarming statistic that 60% of American kids are affected by tooth decay, a figure that has increased during the past 15 years. Chronic oral infection, they warn, can lead to heart disease and diabetes, and dental neglect can also result in trouble concentrating in school and psychological problems. The authors walk parents through the ages and stages of tooth care, in separate chapters addressing infants and toddlers, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence and young adulthood. They include current information on topics including: what to expect at dental visits; the use of fluoride and x-rays; the going rate for the tooth fairy; and the risks of tongue piercing. A chapter on special needs children emphasizes the importance of preparing kids for and keeping up with dental visits. Orthodontics and practical advice about dental insurance is also offered, as well as a chapter on dental anxiety, with tips on how to help children overcome their fears. Packed with useful information, this is indeed an accessible and 'complete' guide. 12 b&w illus." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
