As the evidence mounts regarding systemic connections between oral health and other chronic diseases, new and innovative partnerships are being formed with Extension personnel to educate communities on the importance of oral wellness and disease prevention. The University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service and College of Dentistry have developed one such unique collaboration, The Oral Health Wellness and Disease Prevention Program. Process evaluation data suggests this partnership between non-traditional partners can produce original, easy-to-use, adaptable educational resources that benefit Kentuckians as well as lead the country in innovative approaches to oral health wellness, education, and disease prevention.
