  28. 28. Summary • Oral health in Non-Low Income Neighborhoods has improved. • Oral health in Low Income Neighborhoods has remained stable/showed unfavorable trend. • Children in Non-Low Income Neighborhoods had better health compared to Low Income Neighborhoods. • Oral health in both Urban and Rural children has improved. • Rural children had better oral health compared to Urban children
  29. 29. Discussion Improvements of oral health in Rural areas • Involvement of Nurse Practitioners/Public Health Nurses in rural areas • Possible confounders (Aboriginal status, dental insurance) wasn’t assessed • Role of water fluoridation wasn’t assessed Fluoride water content has not improved over the years. No significant differences in oral health in Fluoridated vs non- Fluoridated areas (SHR Dental Screening Program Report 2013-2014) • Fluoride Varnish Program wasn’t evaluated • Changes in lifestyle and habits in urban areas
  30. 30. Recommendations • Involve Nurse Practitioners/Public Health Nurses in Fluoride Varnish Programs in Urban areas (Low Income Neighborhoods) • Conduct data entry the same day (web-based in real time) • Conduct a national dental survey for children younger than 6 year old. • Canadian Health Measure Survey 2007-2009 ( 6-11 year old children) • Provide free consultation/checkup for the children 1 year old (Canadian Dental Association) • Incorporate oral preventive health care in the universal health care system • Incorporate oral exam as a part of routine prenatal care • Improve training in pediatric dental care and pregnant women dental care in dental school
