UNC to Develop Website Promoting Children’s Dental Health

The University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health's department of health policy and management has been awarded a $20,000 grant to implement Tooth Talk, a website that will provide information about oral health topics to early childhood educators. The Oral Health Initiative grant, supported by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, Bull City Forward and, North Carolina State University's Institute for Emerging Issues, encourages development and implementation of ideas that bring awareness to existing dental health issues and offer oral health solutions for North Carolinians.
