In this episode, Dr. Judy Rollins, PhD, RN, Editor of Pediatric Nursing, talks with Dr. Elaine Musselman, PhD, RN, CNE, the recipient of Pediatric Nursing Journal’s 2020 Donna Wong Writer's Award. Dr. Musselman discusses the key points of her article regarding childhood oral health. Tooth decay is a preventable yet common chronic childhood disease that affects children’s nutritional intake and their ability to speak, play, concentrate, and succeed in school. Pediatric nurses have the opportunity to promote children’s oral health by educating parents and providing anticipatory guidance on dental caries prevention when caring for children in schools, clinics, and acute care settings. Oral health education should be provided to parents in the language spoken most frequently by recipients and when children are infants in the hopes of preventing dental caries on primary teeth.Dr. Elaine Musselman, PhD, RN, CNE, is an Assistant Professor and Associate Director at the School of Nursing, San Francisco State University, San Francisco, California.
