About Mouth and Teeth
The mouth may be a small part of the body, but the lips, teeth, tongue, and jaw have some big jobs. Healthy mouths allow children to properly chew, taste, and swallow their food, speak and form words, and show their mood with a smile or frown. Oral health research takes into account the wellbeing of all these features.
Homewood Healthy Smiles Program
Are you the parent of a child who is 12-17 years old, and do you live in Pittsburgh’s Homewood community? Your child may be able to participate in two 1-hour virtual sessions as part of a research study examining oral health knowledge in children and teens. Topics will include soda and diet, oral hygiene, smoking, vaping, and more. All participants will receive a toothbrush kit.
