The intent of this thesis is to research the effects between pregnancy and oral health and promote awareness of the need for a better systemic approach through a national organization to inform pregnant women of the need for proper oral health care before, during, and after pregnancy. This thesis will aim to examine pregnant women's knowledge on oral health, the effect of a fetus on a woman's oral health, the effects of the woman's oral health on the fetus, how the mother's oral health can have long term effects on the growing child's oral health, and suggestions on how to improve the oral health of pregnant women.
