Dental Trade Alliance Foundation Grant Project
The Division of Developmental Disabilities received a $25,000 grant from the Dental Trade Alliance Foundation (DTAF) of Arlington, VA for a project titled Increasing Awareness of the importance of Oral Health among Missouri Caregivers which is anticipated to impact access to dental care and promote knowledge of oral health’s impact on overall health. The project consists of the production of three brief videos that demonstrate the importance of oral health and how to assist other people with oral hygiene.
This video is geared for people with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities, their caregivers, and their families. It gives an overview of what a dental hygienist does and the importance of oral health as it relates to general health. Video 1 of 3.
This video gives guidance on special circumstances related to providing oral hygiene such as how to assist people with intellectual/developmental disabilities who avoid oral hygiene tasks, how to complete gum care, and how to assist people who do not take food or fluid by mouth and use a feeding tube for nutrition, Video 2 of 3.
This video demonstrates how to assist a person with intellectual/developmental disabilities with oral hygiene tasks while respecting their independence as well as utilizing a positive and encouraging approach. Video 3 of 3.
