The Missouri-based coalition known as P.A.N.D.A. [Prevent Child Abuse and Neglect Through Dental Awareness] was created to address a lack of reporting by dental professionals of suspected child abuse and neglect. P.A.N.D.A.'s educational programs include a history of family violence in our society, clinical examples of confirmed child abuse and neglect, and discussions of legal liability issues involved in reporting child maltreatment.
