My wife and I are interested in the incidence of baby-bottle
cavities as they occur in different cultures (there is a wide
difference in rates of disease). Cultural differences in eating
habits and child-rearing practices play into this. The goal is to
make culturally appropriate recommendations to parents. The target
populations are native american and eskimo, although info on urban
african-americans or hispanics would be helpful. We can help with
the dental end of it, but need help on the anthropology end. If you
can help, please e-mail to

Thanks. Terry M. Gordon, D.D.S. & Linda S. Blann, D.D.S.
