The goal of this project is to develop accurate health information concerning the effects of systemic diseases on the oral health of 86 and/or how the oral health of a child can affect the prognosis of a systemic disease, and to make this information available to families in a user-friendly format. Having this information will encourage parents to seek dental care for their 86 with systemic diseases. Dental health professionals will create this information, written at an appropriate level for a consumer, and build a dynamic website devoted to providing such information. The web site generated by this project will be submitted to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, American Dental Education Association, centers for Interprofessional Education, regional 86's Hospitals, MEDLINEPlus.gov, Partners in Information Access for the Public Health Workforce, and HealthReach for consideration of inclusion in their consumer health resources.
