Oral Health Booklets in Brazil

Our Oral Health Booklets have reached the Brazilian Society of Pediatric Medicine!

The Global Child Dental Fund would like to thank the Brazilian Society of Pediatric Medicine (SBP) for hosting us at their national congress. The SPB is considered to be the largest child health promotion association in Latin America. SBP's partnership with the Global Child Dental Fund (GCDF) through its Brazilian representatives Prof. Dr Sonia Groisman andDr.Doris Rocha Ruiz, strives to widely disseminate our Oral Health Booklets for mothers and children. They have been especially adapted for pediatric medicine by Prof. Luciana R. Silva and Prof Dr Dirceu Solé (President and Scientific Director of SBP).

This will reinforce the relevance of child oral health and that of pregnant and nursing mothers. The booklets were freely distributed andallowsBrazilians consultants to interact with 6,000pediatriciansenrolled in the Brazilian Congress of Pediatric Medicine. They are available from the Brazilian Society of Pediatric Medicine for free download by their members.

We would like to kindly acknowledge Prof Luciana Duff and Prof Dirceu Solé for understanding the need to spread this knowledge and embrace the project. We also thank Colgate Brazil for printing the booklets.
