Cleft lip and/or palate (CL/P), the most prevalent congenital anomaly, is understood to negatively affect a wide range of child development. Since the concept remains controversial, because most published work is from cross‐sectional studies, we examined the neurodevelopmental trajectories in participants with CL/P through a longitudinal comparison...
Article
Objectives Daily toothbrushing behaviour is very effective for the prevention of early childhood dental caries (ECC), but is mostly dependent upon parental management. Intrapersonal association between lower toothbrushing frequency and depression is well known; however, the impact of maternal postpartum depression on child toothbrushing behaviour w...
Article
Background Daily toothbrushing effectively prevents early childhood caries, but it depends on facilitative parenting behaviours. Mother‐to‐infant bonding, the maternal affection toward the infant, is an environmental factor that strongly influences parenting.
