Using the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Brush, Bed and Book model and thanks to support from the DentaQuest Foundation, the Alabama Chapter-AAP and Reach Out and Read-Alabama, in cooperation with the Alabama Academy of Family Physicians, will distribute free materials to 12 practices across the state and guide them on talking with families about early literacy, oral health, and nighttime routines. The Alabama Brush, Book, Bed Statewide Initiative will allow pediatricians and family physicians to use important anticipatory guidance messages to promote three healthy routines--brushing teeth, reading together, and setting a regular bed time--among young children (ages 0 - 3) and their families. 

Each participating practice will receive 500 Pony Brushes His Teeth books to prescribe to children and their families as part of the initiative.
