“A Healthy Mouth for Your Baby” is an easy-to-read brochure for parents of infants or toddlers freely available from the NIH National Institute of Dental and Cranial Facial Research. It explains why baby teeth are important, gives tips on how to prevent early childhood tooth decay, and promotes the age 1 dental visit.

The brochure is available in English and Spanish and is also available specifically for American Indian and Alaska Native parents.

The brochure is downloadable but also available for ordering along with other informative dental health  publications for your organization and the communities you serve.
