This final report reviews and summarizes a community-based, culturally sensitive oral health project in Canim Lake, British Columbia. The project aimed to promote quality infant feeding and prevent early childhood caries in the Canim Lake Band, a Shuswap community of 500 members belonging to the First Nations group. The report summarizes the project and reviews the demonstration components (methodology, problems encountered, timetables), evaluation components (process, impact, and outcome), and project outcomes. Two of the projects implemented—a cradle loan project and construction of a smokehouse—were related to historical Shuswap traditions for comforting fussy babies. Appendices include a sample questionnaire and an evaluation form.

These guidelines for dental public health competencies were developed at a workshop in San Mateo, CA, in May 1997 and are part of the cultural competency material from the Annual Oral Health Conference, held in Lansing, Michigan, in June 2000. The preamble explains some of the history of the competencies and how the new ones differ from previous ones. The competencies themselves list what dental public health practitioners should do rather than what they should know or understand. They also provide performance indicators. Competency areas include program planning, program evaluation, oral health promotion, ethics, culturally competent services, and surveillance systems.
