Best Practice Approach Reports

Oral Health of Children, Adolescents and Adults with Special Health Care Needs

A Best Practice Approach is defined as a public health strategy that is supported by evidence for its impact and effectiveness. Evidence includes research, expert opinion, field lessons, and theoretical rationale.

A Best Practice Approach Report captures key information that describes the public health strategy, determines the strength of evidence, and illustrates implementation with current practice examples. The report serves as a resource to share ideas and promote best practices for state and community oral health programs.
