MDAC's medical-dental collaboration work group convened an interprofessional group that consisted of professionals from dentistry, nursing, education, and library services, in addition to a UMB dental student, two dental hygiene students, and a graduate Doctor of Nursing Practice student and pediatric nurse practitioner. They attended three book review sessions during which they were tasked with reviewing children's books about oral health and rated each book based on criteria created by the group.
