    This report considers the effect of Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Testing (EPSDT) program revisions on the provision of oral health care to children and adolescents covered by the program. The 1989 Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA '89) included oral health professionals as primary health providers under the terms of the original program. The introduction reviews the background of the EPSDT program and the OBRA '89 changes. The report then considers the feasibility of using dentists and dental hygienists as primary care providers, reviews the advantages of doing so, and recommends policy changes to increase the role of oral health providers in primary care.

        This report evaluates the design, implementation, and results of three small preventive health education demonstration grants awarded to community health centers. The study reviewed the Pike Market Medical Clinic Nutrition Intervention Program in Seattle, Washington; the Adolescent Periodontal Disease Prevention Program, a Colorado migrant health program; and "Great to Wait," the adolescent pregnancy prevention program operated by Health Care Partners of South Carolina. The latter program was based on the adolescent abstinence training program "Postponing Sexual Involvement," developed by Dr. Marion Howard at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, with additional information from "True Love Waits." The "Great to Wait" program targeted adolescents ages 11–14 in rural communities with a large African-American population. The report includes information on the design of each program, its organization and implementation, the outcomes, and the evaluation process. The report also includes examples of the training materials and evaluation instruments.
