Call for Materials: Promoting Oral Health in Schools – Deadline: Open

The National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center is producing a resource guide focusing on oral health promotion and prevention in schools for children and adolescents (grades K–12). Descriptions of journal articles, materials, and organizations that can serve as additional resources will be included in the guide. What works in schools? Please send us materials that address oral health in the context of schools that would be helpful to others, for example: Protocols for oral health screening, including baseline data or surveillance reports using the Basic Screening Survey; Protocols for dental sealant or fluoride varnish application; Forms for school entrance requirements that include oral health examinations; Comprehensive school health education curricula frameworks; State academic standards for health education; Pre-service and in-service manuals for training school personnel (administrators, teachers, coaches); Research on the relationship between oral health and learning; Policies and guidelines such as vending machines in schools, tobacco prevention, injury prevention and school wellness.  For more information, visit:
