Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) have been categorized as some of the greatest unaddressed public health threats that can lead to serious health problems later in life. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), ACEs refer to some of the most intensive and frequently occurring sources of stress that children may suffer early in life, including abuse, neglect, and household dysfunction. This course will aim at providing an understanding of ACEs by identifying what they consist of and their later impact in adulthood health status. This course will explain how ACEs can negatively impact oral health and will evaluate the role of the dental provider at identifying potential signs in patients. Finally, this course will discuss how to implement childhood adversities screening tools in the dental setting.
