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 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.
