Why did we develop A Mouthful of History?

In many states, formal oral health education stops at first or second grade, and in some cases isn’t taught at all. By integrating oral health and dental career topics within online lessons designed to satisfy existing educational standards, A Mouthful of History will enable educators to establish high levels of oral health literacy without straining existing academic schedules or school staffing budgets. A Mouthful of History aims to be the spark that makes young learners interested in oral health and aspire to join the dental profession.

A Mouthful of History is funded through the National Institute of General Medical Sciences’ NIH Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA).

What do we plan to do?
