Research strengthens link between obesity and dental health in homeless children
Date:11/13/2012

and even running water in some homes, said DiMarco, who has seen dental caries as the predominant infectious disease in rural and urban children.

"Many people do not realize ," she said, "that dental caries is an infectious disease that can be transmitted from the primary caregiver and siblings to other children."

To help reduce the spread of dental infection, DiMarco reminds parents that gum disease and other oral infections can be spread by licking a child's spoon or baby bottle, or by sharing toothbrushes.

Another problem for children of poverty is access to dental care, where families lack the financial means and transportation to make and keep an appointment. And some working poor may not qualify for Ohio's Childhood Health Insurance Program, which subsidizes health and dental care reimbursements to providers.

"There are no easy solutions," DiMarco said, "especially with the homeless population."

Pediatric nurse practitioners are in a pivotal position to provide health information from birth through the teen years to prevent such health issues, DiMarco said.
