More than 3,600 families had a little something extra at bedtime thanks to the New Jersey Department of Health, Children's Oral Health Program and a $25,000 grant from the DTA Foundation in 2015.
“Bedtime Bytes (BB) was an interactive oral health project that was implemented at two Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and the College of New Jersey/School of Nursing, Health and Exercise Science,” said Beverly Kupiec-Sce, Ph.D., R.N., director of the children’s oral health program. “The goals were to increase oral health literacy, assist in establishing a dental home, and improve the oral health status of high-risk children.Oral health training was conducted for a multi-disciplinary staff of pediatricians, family practice physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered and licensed practical nurses and medical assistants. A training was also conducted for senior-level community health nursing students at the College of New Jersey.”
