Oral health is a commonly neglected area of healthcare across the world. Especially amongst underserved populations, many people do not prioritize dental health care, do not have access to dental health care, and do not realize the importance of dental health care. This project aims to educate the population on the importance of dental health care. The participants in the project include those enrolled in different parenting programs at a local non-profit organization in Central New York. Pre and post surveys were administered to evaluate an increase in knowledge on dental health. Demographic-specific educational materials such as brochures, pamphlets, games, quizzes, activities, and classes were designed for the education sessions. Results found that there is a high percentage of people who lack dental care. Results also showed that there is little knowledge on need for dental care.
