Speaker: Ronald Burkoff D.MD, M.P.H., Chairman, Department of Dental Medicine, North Shore-LIJ, and Founding Chair and Professor, Department of Dental Medicine, Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine.
Dental caries is one of the most extensive chronic infectious diseases of children. Despite the fact that the prevalence of dental decay is trending downward, the decrease is observed primarily in high income children. The disparities in oral health have widened; low income children have a higher prevalence of caries and untreated decay and a lower utilization of dental services. Join Ronald Burkoff, DMD, MPH as he reviews the extent of the problem, the risk factors, and proven prevention. The program will include a question and answer session following the presentation.
