Obesidad Infantil: importancia para los odontólogos pediatras

Si se tiene en cuenta la pandemia actual de obesidad en la infancia, los odontólogos pediatras deberían involucrarse en el rastreo, la prevención y el tratamiento precoz. Cuando en el consultorio odontológico se comprueban hábitos de vida y dietarios no saludables y aumento del peso corporal, los padres deberían ser asesorados y los enfermos deberían ser derivados a pediatras y nutricionistas.
