Classroom and Community Education
State public health dental hygienists provide oral health education programs that may include videos, interactive exhibits, and printed educational materials. Instruction covers dental disease prevention, oral hygiene practices, dental injury prevention, appropriate diet, consumerism and professional dental care practices. Most programs are targeted towards elementary aged children to establish good oral hygiene habits. Programs for caregivers of adult vulnerable populations (such as the frail elderly or those with intellectual or developmental disabilities) are in development.
