This self-guided eWorkshop explores how Americans think about children's oral health, and how communications strategies can reframe the issue to build support for the reforms that advocates put forward to improve the oral health system. It also introduces the Watch Your Mouth public awareness campaign. The eWorkshop is intended to provide advocates and experts with a clear understanding of both the current state of public understanding of children's oral health, and the tools needed to lead the public to a more informed understanding of the need for systemic change. The resource contains slides, audio, video, exercises, and links to outside resources.

This report describes an initiative to reduce oral health burdens among individuals in Pennsylvania who cannot afford dentists or who are unable to find oral health professionals who will treat them and their families.

The report presents an analysis of the impact the grants have had to date using three metrics: access to care, quality of care, and financial sustainability. Implications for future improvements in the oral health of underserved populations in Pennsylvania are also addressed.
