Styrian caries prophylaxis prevention programme
The Styrian caries prevention program, which is funded by the Styrian health insurance funds and the province of Styria, is since 1986 a programme focusing on practicing the correct brushing technique, regular check-ups and the age-appropriate information about oral health in children in Kindergartens and Primary schools . It also involves the education of parents and pregnant mothers, and specifically targets economically disadvantaged children. Parents receive valuable assistance and tips on dental health needs of their children.
The evaluation of the programme is carried out as part of the Austria-wide dental status surveys, coordinated by the Association of Austrian Social Security Institutions.
