BD-1 that are associated with caries risk?

Detroit Dental Health Project Research Focused on Action and Service Center Director- Amid Ismail, BDS, MPH, Dr. PH
– Why do some African-American children (0 -5 years old) and their main caregivers have better oral health than others who live in the same community and share similar social, economic, and cultural characteristics?
Detroit Dental Health Project Surveying and tracking 1, 021 families Community Advisory Board We serve and we care – – – Partial funding for two dental clinics in community Funding for special services (biopsies and surgeries) Immediate referral for care
Social and Cultural Determinants of Caries PI: Kristine Seifert, MPH, Ph. D Diet and Caries- children 3 -5 in high caries group average 4. 4 intakes of soda per week Mothers’ Self-Efficacy Maternal depression symptoms (34% likely or probably) Cigarette smoking (42% of caregivers) Multilevel Analysis of Neighborhood Characteristics and Dental Caries
Lead Levels and Caries PI: Brian Burt, BDS, MPH, Ph. D National mean 1. 66 µg/dl for ages 1 year and older.
Multi-Component Individually Tailored Intervention PI: Jorge Delva, Ph. D 5 components implemented sequentially – Motivational interviewing (MI) after dental examination – Oral Health Educational DVD – MI: Individual goals – MI: Identification of barriers and resources to overcome barriers – Follow-up telephone calls and newsletters
Evaluation of Dental Access and Utilization After Medi-Caid Fee Leveling PI: Stephen Eklund, Dr. P. H. , D. D. S. , M. H. S. A. Higher percentage of children received regular (annual) care- 50% higher than “regular” Medi-Caid kids More comprehensive mix of services received per treated child.
