MARTINEZ ABREU, Judit; PENA RUIZ, Tatiana y GARCIA MARTINEZ, Alfredo. Importance of the education in infantile oral health for women. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.4, pp. 499-508. ISSN 1684-1824.
The program Educate your child is directed to family with children aged 0-6 years. Its main objective is contributing to the successful outcome of that enormous responsibility the children's education is. It has been generalized since 1992 around the country, with wide community participation. In that program they offer orientation to parents for the development of their children, their value formation and health care, nutrition and accident prevention. Nonetheless, there is still the necessity of increasing knowledge on infantile oral health in the family as a main cell of the society, to prevent the oral diseases and control the associated risk facts. It is the woman who plays the main educative role, because she is the one who is nearer to the children in these first years of life. We made a bibliographic review starting from a documental analysis of programs and articles related with infantile education and oral health. We make some considerations that have to be taken into account for bettering and updating the current programs, making emphasis in the importance of educating and preparing women in infantile oral health for the moment of motherhood.
