Online Intervention Developed to Support Optimal Self-Care

Funded by a grant from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, State University of New York at Buffalo investigators will launch an online intervention to help dental patients improve their oral hygiene regimens. The team will design a program based on motivational interviewing to assist patients in establishing and practicing optimal brushing and flossing habits. The research model calls for conducting focus group interviews with dentists, dental hygienists and patients before developing and testing various iterations of the program to determine the most effective intervention.
