  • On the back of the patient–facing pages are helpful conversation guidelines for providers (English).
     
  • The pages are laminated (making them wipeable for infection control) and bound with a metal ring that is easily opened to remove or re-order pages to your preference.

 

 

Oral health topics covered include:

  • How does a cavity form?
