Title: Journal of Public Health Dentistry. Maryland Oral Health Summit: Pathways to Common Ground and Action Background Papers and Commentaries
Abstract: This issue of the Journal of Public Health Dentistry presents papers developed at the October 2011 Maryland Oral Health Summit. One goal of the Summit was to address disparities in child and adolescent oral health care in response to the 2007 death of a 12-year-old boy from an untreated dental infection that spread to his brain. It contains commentaries from healthcare professionals within the dental community, experts representing local, state, and federal programs, and academia, that provide perspectives on past, present and future goals of oral health at the state level, and strategies to bring public awareness to treatable and preventable diseases that have the potential to cause serious illness, even death. The issue contains tables, figures, and references.
