Multi-Media Parent-Based Intervention to Promote Dental Hygiene Among Young Children: BeReady2Smile

Investigators are creating a web-based program to help educate parents in the best ways to promote oral health among young children

This private/public collaboration between Oregon Research Behavioral Intervention Strategies (Influents Innovations, Inc.), ORI, & the Oregon Community Foundation will create a commercially viable oral health prevention program to promote dental health in young children. The program will be targeted at parents of young children attending parenting education classes and families receiving home visiting services through Head Start. The program includes a video that can be shown in parenting education classes to engage parents on oral health and a mobile/web application to drive behavioral change.
