Oral Health Information Tutorial
As part of an NN/LM SCR funded project, SMILE (Sharing MedlinePlus/MEDLINE for Information Literacy Education), library staff from the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio developed an online tutorial to provide instruction that focuses on finding and evaluating information relevant to public health dental practice. The Oral Health Information Tutorial is now available for practitioners such as educators, dental hygienists and dentists working in the field of dental public health.
You can view each of the 4 modules of the tutorial independently:
- Module 1: Toolkit for Dental Public Health Professionals – Learn how to define public health dentistry and identify professional resources to help stay informed of developments in the field.
- Module 2: Evidence-Based Dental Public Health – Learn how to find evidence-based scientific literature and apply it to your practice.

- Module 4: Oral Health Resources – Learn what quality online resources exist for patients and consumers.
