The purpose of this course is to introduce a unique strategy to address health literacy. It is outlined to thoroughly educate dental professionals about the Lessons in a Lunch Box program by teaching the necessary steps to efficiently present these materials to their audience. This course will equip professionals with information and resources necessary to offer this oral health education presentation in the communities they serve. A “dentally designed” lunch box and a dental hygiene products container crafted in the likeness of a fresh carrot are used to aid in presenting the program, in capturing the attention of young audiences and in making sure the meaningful lessons being taught are remembered long after the one hour presentation.
