Information for pediatricians in Germany

The networking between medical and dental early detection in infants is progressing. The new child directive did come into place on September 1st, 2016. The so called “yellow booklet” has been expanded. The new checkboxes for dentists regulate periods in which the examinations have to take place from U5 to U9 in Germany.

The U5 and U6 concern the “clarification of abnormalities of teeth and mucous membrane”. In the case of the U7, clarification of abnormalities in the growth of the jaw still occurs, and starting with the U7a, it belongs to the dental early diagnosis examination.

Tooth decay is an avoidable disease!
