ECC Collaborative - New Packet Materials (FY 2012)
The Early Childhood Caries Collaborative documents are available to all IHS, Tribal, and Urban dental clinics in October, 2011. The left side contains information for our medical and community partners including WIC, Head Start, CHRs, public health nurses, medical providers, and Tribal Councils or Governing Boards. The right side contains documents specific to the dental team, including information about the collaborative, how to engage medical and community partners, sealants, and Interim Therapeutic Restorations (ITRs). Together, these documents provide dental programs with most of the tools they need to understand and implement the IHS ECC Collaborative.
Please contact the ECC Co-Chairpersons and request permission before using the ECC logo on any materials.
