Oral health is a major public health issue affecting all population groups. Poor oral health during childhood is directly associated with poor oral health outcomes in adulthood as people remain more susceptible to developing dental caries throughout their lives. Oral health has an impact on all systems of the body. For example, Early Childhood Caries (ECC) can lead to more widespread health issues, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

This literature review takes a look at preschoolers oral health.

Face the Facts was launched in April 2009 to present some hard-hitting facts about tobacco consumption in New Zealand.
