Announcement: New Pilot Project
Our Thurston County ABCD program has partnered with the Washington Dental Services Foundation in a new initiative to expand awareness of the oral health needs of pregnant women.
The focus of the Prenatal Oral Health Initiative is twofold:
1. Educate pregnant women about the importance of good dental health during pregnancy, and
2. Offer dentists and OB providers information about the latest guidelines for safe dental treatment during pregnancy.
Our goal is to improve the oral health of pregnant women, thereby improving overall health outcomes in pregnant women and their newborn infants. The idea is to set up referral relationships between OB providers and dentists, so that more pregnant women with all types of insurance have access to care when they need it.
