Monday Roundtable Luncheon
Children's Dental Services (CDS), with support from Oral Health America, is leading a teen-focused wellness project in two high schools in Minneapolis, Minnesota during the 2018-2019 school year. This roundtable will walk through the process by which CDS has engaged with school staff to form two cohorts of students who will be involved in implementing an incentive program to increase the rate of dental consent-to-care forms for the 2018-2019 school year. Additionally, this roundtable will discuss the student-led oral health campaign, the incentives that engaged the students leading the oral health campaign and the success of the incentives on the overall return rate of dental consent-to-care forms. During the roundtable, participants will hear about and discuss what motivated high-school aged students to actively participate in their own oral health and what emboldened students to seek on-site dental services at their school.
