More than 250 allied professionals and community stakeholders gathered in Calgary to learn about the latest research on early childhood caries and explore how they can work together in new ways to reduce the rates of this increasingly common disease. Early childhood caries has become one of the most prevalent childhood diseases worldwide. After decades of decline, it has begun to increase in children. This preventable disease profoundly affects the quality of life for thousands of Canadian children and their families, and increases the burden on the health care system. Calgary’s oral health programs and pediatric dentists formed the Early Childhood Caries Taskforce to address the issue, which led to this seminal conference. The aim was to provide the dental community and non-dental stakeholders with an opportunity to focus on the current science behind early childhood caries, the roles of family and community, Partnering to Reverse the Trend: Early Childhood Caries Conference Report September 28–29, 2007, Calgary, Albertaand to explore collaborative new pathways to prevent the disease.
