A bilingual DVD and guidebook, "Sonrisa: A Guide to Dental Health For Hispanic Americans" is now available to dentists and their patients. The ADA has launched a patient-friendly section on its Web site to serve this growing segment of the population. At www.ada.org/goto/espanol, dentists and patients who speak Spanish can access oral health information outside the dental office.
"Sonrisa" (Spanish for "smile”) is designed to help families prevent oral health problems, find affordable dental care, provide tips for parents, and encourage dental careers for Hispanic-Americans. Copies of the DVD and guide are available by calling (800) 223-0182.
