Abstract

Nurses are often in an ideal position to observe, counsel on effective prevention, and make appropriate and timely referrals for common oral health conditions. This second part in a series of four articles for nurse educators based on a stage of life is focused on the school years, ages 6 to young adult. Specific sections on caries, dental sources of pain, periodontal disease, common oral soft tissue lesions, trauma, and psychosocial issues are presented, which can be incorporated in nursing education as appropriate.
