This report examines nine community and migrant health centers (C/MHC) with highly effective and low cost dental components: (1) to determine common characteristics of the programs so that other effective treatment centers can be set up using those characteristics, (2) to help establish a committee of dental directors to serve as advisors, and (3) to discuss the changing role of C/MHC with regards to dental prepayment and financing of care. Case study findings are reviewed as well as findings unique to migrant dental care facilities.

      This report evaluates the design, implementation, and results of three small preventive health education demonstration grants awarded to community health centers. The study reviewed the Pike Market Medical Clinic Nutrition Intervention Program in Seattle, Washington; the Adolescent Periodontal Disease Prevention Program, a Colorado migrant health program; and "Great to Wait," the adolescent pregnancy prevention program operated by Health Care Partners of South Carolina. The latter program was based on the adolescent abstinence training program "Postponing Sexual Involvement," developed by Dr. Marion Howard at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, with additional information from "True Love Waits." The "Great to Wait" program targeted adolescents ages 11–14 in rural communities with a large African-American population. The report includes information on the design of each program, its organization and implementation, the outcomes, and the evaluation process. The report also includes examples of the training materials and evaluation instruments.
