Smallfry Smiles: A Guide for Teaching Dental Health in Community Care Programs.
Johnson, Alice; And Others
This publication has been designed to help nurses, teachers, volunteers, health administrators, social workers, and other individuals in the community in improving dental care instruction for the children in a community dental care program. The publication is based on the premise that availability of dental care services does not necessarily insure utilization of these programs unless the individual recipient, the family, and the community have an awareness of the importance of oral health. To upgrade dental care programs, educational services must be made available to every child as well as to the adults who influence his learning. The educational objectives in this guide are expressed as teaching targets--what the child and his parent must do to achieve life-long dental health. The guide also includes suggested audio-visual materials and activities to enhance an educational program. (Author/SES)
