This catalog of oral health education materials is divided into the following categories: early childhood caries, children's oral health, dental sealants, nutrition and oral health, periodontal diseases, oral health for people with disabilities, fluorides and fluoridation, oral hygiene instruction, pregnancy and oral health, tobacco, and general oral health. Materials listed include pamphlets, videotapes, slide presentations, and other health education materials. For each category, program descriptions follow the list of materials. Entries provide information on title, target audience, format, cost, and source. The methodology for selecting and rating these materials is described; some, but not all, of the items were tested for degree of difficulty using the SMOG index for reading materials. The 1988 edition is titled Oral Health Educational Materials Catalog; the 1993 edition, Oral Health Education Catalog of Recommended Materials.
