This site provides a home for resources, teaching tools, program information and research articles on oral health and the Aboriginal child. This venture came about as a result of a forum that took place in Winnipeg, Canada in June 2007 called “Oral Health and the Aboriginal Child” and an enduring partnership with the Institute for Circumpolar Health Research in Yellowknife which has developed and maintained this site. One of the outcomes of the forum was a compilation of resources related to improving oral health in Aboriginal children from various organizations and the development of a clearinghouse or knowledge transfer site to enable access to these specific resources; a “one-stop shop”.
Feel free to explore the site! We hope it will be helpful to you whether you are a parent, caregiver, health professional, and researcher or just interested in improving the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal children.
