Caries Risk Assessment from the American Academy of Dentistry

Posted on: April 27, 2010

Bright Smiles from Birth is an ICAAP educational program that provides guidelines and support to Pediatricians and Family Physicians, Dentists, and families to make oral health a component of well child visits.

The American Dental Society (ADA) has created a caries risk assessment form. This can be used to determine a child’s risk for developing caries.

This form was developed by the ADA Center for Evidence-Based Dentistry which provides guidance topics such as the use of fluoride, sealants and tobacco.  These additional topics can be found on the ADA evidence based dentistry website.
