Homecare Aids

Assessment

We started with the survey to see if they had ever been to the
dentist and if they were brushing and flossing at home.
The questions were presented to the whole group and we asked
them to raise their hands so we could collect the data from
their answers.
The average age of the kids was 4 years old, so we know they
may have raised their hand to answers just because the person
next to them did.
We did not do follow up questions because they were done
listening and wanted to play with the puppets.

Survey Questions
Raise

your hand if you have been to the dentist before

Raise

your hand if you brush your teeth in the


morning and at night

Raise

your hand if you have ever flossed your teeth;


keep your hand raised if you floss every day

Reflection

We had a blast getting to present to the


preschoolers at Allison Park. Their attention
span lasted about 20 minutes and then we let
them pick a puppet to show us how they
brush their teeth. We had some good laughs
when talking about healthy snacks. I feel like
our lesson plan was well organized and we
were able to use terms that they would
understand while still making a positive
impact. Their teacher called me the next day
and said that her students really enjoyed the
presentation and that they were all telling her
about how they brushed their teeth with their
new toothbrush.

Pre-Questionnaire

How many of your residents received preventive dental care in the past year?

How many of your residents received emergency dental care in the past year?

Brushing twice per day, morning and night. Chlorhexidine rinse is administered once per month. Most residents have a
preference for interproximal cleaning devices, such as toothpicks or flosspicks, and some have a power toothbrush.

How many of your residents currently have dentures, either full or partial?

None!

What is the daily protocol for oral hygiene with your residents?

All of them! A dentist visits the care facility once per year and a hygienist provides cleanings with a mobile unit.
Transportation can be arranged if residents need to visit a dental office for further care.

Almost all of them.

How does our staff assist these residents in caring for their dentures?

Soak them overnight in warm water and brush them with a manual toothbrush.

Post-Presentation Quiz

Tooth loss is a normal part of aging.

Gum disease is a minor infection.

FACT & FICTION Gum disease starts as a minor, reversible infection; but, if left
untreated, it progresses to a chronic disease for which there is no cure.

Bleeding gums are normal.

FICTION Tooth loss is not a normal part of aging. Teeth are meant to last a lifetime!

FICTION Bleeding gums are not normal. We dont bleed from any other tissue in our
body unless we have an infection or injury.

People lose their teeth because of cavities.

FICTION More people lose their teeth due to periodontal disease than to cavities.

Evaluation/Reflection

Our presentation was

Assessment

We asked pre survey questions to assess the kids daily


brushing and flossing habits and nutritional knowledge.

The questions were asked to the whole group and the kids
answered by raise of hands and voices.

After the kids answered the questions we followed up with an


explanation to the answers.

The kids were then asked the same questions again to


assess if they were understanding what we were explaining.

Pre and Post Survey Questions

The following questions were answered by a show of hands:

1. How many of you brush your teeth every day or know youre suppose to
brush your teeth every day?

2. How many of you floss everyday or know youre suppose to floss


your teeth every day?

3. How many of you think this is a picture of healthy food (visual aid of

Reflection/Evaluation

This was such a great group of kids to present to and we felt


our presentation was fun and interactive for them!

We utilized a pre and post-questionnaire that the kids


answered by raise of hands. Most of the kids knew the answers
to the pre questions and then after explanation of the answers
every kid knew the answer to the same post questions.

We involved the kids throughout the whole presentation, which


kept them engaged. They had lots of questions for us and they
actually caught on to the information very quickly.

The caregivers thought our presentation was great and asked


if we could come by every 3 months to teach the kids the
importance of brushing, because most of them dont brush
their teeth.

Overall, we were very pleased with the effectiveness of our


presentation and how interested the kids were in our
information. It was a fun experience and we would love to do it
again!

The End!
WITH A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO GAVE US
THEIR TIME AND ATTENTION TO LEARN ABOUT ORAL HEALTH.
