Background:
The “PA Age One Connect the Dots” Pilot Project supports the current standard of care in the AAPD, ADA, and AAP national recommendations.

Workshop Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the importance of the "Age One" or baby dental visit
2. List the risk factors for Early Childhood Caries (ECC)
3. Demonstrate a knee-to-knee examination
