Early Childhood Caries (ECC) Educational Materials

The Inter Tribal Council of Arizona, Inc. Dental Prevention and Clinical Support Center (ITCA DPCSC) in collaboration with the ITCA Women, Infants and Children Program, Indian Health Service (IHS) Phoenix Indian Medical Center’s Dental and Nurses’ Programs, and the ITCA Dental Support Center Working Group have designed some oral health Early Childhood Caries (ECC) educational materials. These products are made possible with funding support from the American Dental Association Foundation’s Dr. Samuel D. Harris Children’s Dental Health Grant Program. These materials were developed in the spirit to start a culturally appropriate ECC awareness and dental prevention campaign focusing on children 16 months and younger and pre-and post-natal parents in the Phoenix and Tucson IHS Service Areas.

Flyer: “Give Your Baby the Gift of a Proud Smile”
This flyer can be used for chair side education and waiting room use.

Brochure: “Your Baby’s Precious Teeth are at Risk for Decay Starting with the First Tooth”

The brochure can be used for chair side education only. It is important for your staff to go over the information with your patients before giving it out to them. It is preferred to go over the brochure with pre/post-natal parents of children 16 months and younger.

Posters: “1st Birthday. 1st Priority. 1st Dental Visit” and “Your Baby’s Teeth are at Risk for Decay Starting with the First Tooth”

These posters can be hung in the clinic’s waiting room or in a clinical room. They are laminated for infection control purposes and wipe easily.
