National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR)
The purpose of this Toolkit is to provide guidance, technical tools, and resources to help states, territories, tribes and communities develop and implement successful oral health components of Healthy People 2010 plans as well as other oral health plans. These plans are useful for: (1) promoting, implementing and tracking oral health objectives; (2) educating the public and policymakers about oral health needs and disparities; and (3) leveraging resources for oral health-related programs and activities. The Toolkit consists of six chapters: (1) Overview of the Oral Health Toolkit and History of Healthy People Initiatives and HP 2010; (2) Building the Foundation: Leadership and Structure; (3) Setting Health Priorities, Establishing Oral Health Objectives and Obtaining Baseline Data; (4) Identifying and Leveraging Resources; (5) Communicating Oral Health Goals and Objectives; and (6) Implementing Strategies, Managing and Sustaining the Process, and Measuring Progress. Each chapter includes: background information; checklists and/or worksheets; tips for success; national, state/territorial, tribal or community examples; and resources and references for further information. [The HP 2010 Oral Health Toolkit builds upon and uses material from "Healthy People Toolkit 2010: A Field Guide for Health Planning" developed by the Public Health Foundation (PHF) in 1999 with funding from the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion of the US Department of Health and Human Services (USDHHS). It was produced by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health, USDHHS.]
