In addition to supporting physicians, HTHC is dedicated to educating community members on the importance of oral health to overall health and has launched a variety of oral health literacy programs, including:
- Links to free printable oral health resources for care providers and community members, including posters, flyers, stickers, bookmarks and more (many translated into multiple languages);
- Oral Health Community Engagement Kits for groups, university programs and clubs promoting and supporting oral health community outreach and service-learning opportunities; and
- Oral Health Story Kits providing basic oral health education for use by libraries, home visitors, community organizations and early learning programs that encourage good oral health habits for children and families in their communities.
HTHC is developing new community-based projects that strategically engage local agencies and organizations to expand community-wide oral health education and establish sustainable local oral health networks.
