Community-Based Oral Health Programs: A Need and Plan for Evaluation

In a recently released report, by the Washington, DC-based nonprofit, nonpartisan Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has laid out a plan for developing an evaluation "toolbox" for community-based oral health programs. It is based on a review of program evaluations and interviews with community-based oral health experts, program administrators, providers, policymakers, and researchers.
