  Oral health is a critical component of overall health and wellbeing yet, oral disease remains a silent epidemic in part due to missed prevention opportunities [1]. Physiological conditions such as pregnancy, puberty, menstrual cycle, menopause and non-physiological conditions such as hormonal contraception and hormonal therapy, all influence women’s oral health [2]. Pregnant women have special oral health needs due to hormonal fluctuations (estrogen and progesterone), which have a strong influence on the oral cavity. Maintenance of oral health during pregnancy has been recognized as an important public health issue worldwide [3].
