What is the P.E.P. Program?
Parent, It's Up To You! is an oral health curriculum that is designed for use in a classroom setting for teen parents, parents-to-be and as a prep for parenting classes. The educational curriculum consists of three lesson plans and contains information on:
- Dental care during pregnancy.
- Dental care for infants including information on tooth decay.
- Dental care for preschoolers.
The major goal of the program is to provide knowledge as well as teach skills that will enable students to enhance personal hygiene and overall self-esteem. The curriculum includes a videotape (English and Spanish) and a poster illustrating tooth decay. A copy of Parent, It's Up To You!, the oral health curriculum and the video can be obtained by e-mailing the Oral Health Program.
