Motivational Interviewing in Preventing Early Childhood Caries in Primary Healthcare: A Community-based Randomized Cluster Trial.

A fascinating article for several reasons. First, this was published in Pediatrics, not a dental journal. Most people in dentistry probably would never see it. But our physician colleagues are interested in the mouth as well. And we should be reading more widely more frequently. Secondly, this study saw a 60% reduction in caries in the MI group. That’s incredible!
