AAPD President Dr. Edward Moody and AAPD President-Elect Dr. Robert Delarosa were both interviewed by Stephanie Witmer for a story on DailyParent.com on   common kids’ dental health problems and how to avoid them.  According to the article:
 
It probably comes as no surprise that cavities top the list of dental issues among patients ages 1 to 18, according to Dr. Robert Delarosa, DDS, a pediatric dentist in Baton Rouge, La., and the president-elect of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Although cavities can cause a lot of problems, most of the time, they’re preventable.
 
Dr. Edward Moody, DDS, a pediatric dentist in Morristown, Tenn., and the current president of the AAPD, says that, in general, parents schedule their child’s first dental visit too late—often by several years. The AAPD recommends children see a dentist by their first birthdays, but many parents wait until age 2 or 3 or later.
