Dental Implications of Adolescent Pregnancy

Introduction

Introduction

While it has always been difficult being an adolescent (teen/teenager), today’s adolescents currently face more challenges than in the past.  Even healthy and socially well-adapted teens can have a difficult time coping during this period of physical and emotional transition in their body and minds.  The most prevalent medico-social issues facing adolescents are pregnancy, substance abuse and eating disorders.  This course is intended to help the dental professional identify and manage adolescent pregnancy issues and their dental implications.
