This project is a pilot of a multi-language oral health patient information dissemination project starting with the village of Skokie, IL. We plan to translate selected oral health patient information from the American Dental Associations ADA website and other developed oral health patient information repositories into several non-English languages, and capitalize on the ADA librarys developing partnerships with the Skokie Health Department, community-based healthcare providers, and other community partners to distribute the information to their patients and clients in the Skokie community. Close partnerships will allow selection of high-need, high-use patient education materials most relevant to the communities being served. With the success of this project and implementing lessons learned, we will explore expanding and replicating this effort throughout the greater midwest region with the Community Dental Health Coordinator program.
