Smiles for Moms and Babies

During pregnancy, we know moms focus on doing what’s right for them and for their baby. Going to the dentist should be on their “to do” list. The Smiles for Moms and Babies program focuses on helping women improve their oral health during their pregnancies. We also work with providers who care for pregnant women to ensure all Texas babies have healthy smiles.
