The model of anticipatory care guidance is valuable for general dentists and dental auxiliaries because its emphasis is preventive rather than restorative care. A comprehensive perinatal and infant oral care program utilizes 1) risk assessments at regularly scheduled dental visits; 2) counseling sessions with parents during either regular dental visits or additional visits scheduled if a child is deemed at risk; 3) preventive treatment such as the application of fluoride varnish or sealants; and 4) outreach and incentives to reinforce attendance.
