Write Review

This continuing education (CE) course exemplifies oral health literacy education. It was developed to offer dental health professionals an innovative way to improve oral health literacy by going directly into second and third grade classrooms. Today, this direct delivery of the program could include a virtual Lessons in a Lunch Box presentation. This CE lecture introduces unique strategies to address health literacy utilizing a lunch box designed with stimulating educational content focusing on wellbeing behaviors, and dental careers guidance. Additionally, the lunch box contains oral hygiene products packaged in a charming travel case.
