This resource provides evidence-based recommendations and findings about what works to improve public oral health. Strategies are reviewed and interventions outlined in three key areas: (1) prevention of dental caries; (2) prevention of oral and pharyngeal cancers; and (3) prevention of oral and facial injuries. Recommendations include community water fluoridation, school-based or -linked dental sealant delivery programs, early cancer detection, and the use of protective gear for the head and the mouth during contact sports.

This report provides an overview of the Dental Sealant and Education Initiative proposed by the Children's Dental Center. The proposed initiative involves a highly collaborative and multifaceted effort to reduce the incidence of preventable dental disease in low-income school-age children in Southern California. The initiative would use proven technology to reduce tooth decay and would model cost-effectiveness by using a community-based mechanism for delivering the technology. The report addresses the initiative's goals, principles, and factors that would contribute to its success. An implementation schedule is included.
