This final report presents the results of a 4-year project to provide a continuum of preventive oral health care services to children in five elementary schools in south suburban San Diego County, California, in collaboration with the San Diego County Smiles Program, an early childhood caries prevention program. Report sections include an overview of the purpose of the project, goals and objectives, methodology, evaluation, results and outcomes, publications and products, dissemination and utilization of results, future plans and follow-up, and type and amount of support and resources needed to replicate the project. Appendices include an example of the database used for tracking and evaluation, a sample letter to parents, policies and procedures, sample student records, a fourth-grade student record, a dental report card, a dental sealant flyer, a consent form, and a second-year follow-up consent form. Also included are printouts from a PowerPoint presentation outlining the program, sample flyers, and promotional items. The appendices are also provided on an enclosed CD-ROM.
