Oral Health in the Home™

 

Oral Health in the Home™ PWP has designed this program to help caregivers and families improve toothbrushing, flossing and oral health for children and adults with disabilities. Oral Health in the Home™ combines both in-class and hands-on practice that is fun, interactive, and practical. Families and caregivers learn new skills - that make oral health care easier for them to support and for their loved ones with disabilities to complete.

 

Stephanie Sweet, RDH and PWP dental hygienist conducts the class with Danielle Saienni, PWP lead practice specialist. The inspiration for Oral Health in the Home came from the experience of working with people with disabilities, their families and caregivers who come to Practice Without Pressure for dental care. Since 2011, more than 600 individuals with disabilities, staff, caregivers and parents have completed PWP’s Oral Health in the Home program. Staff and clients of Chimes DE, Mosaic, and Community Systems, Inc., have contracted with PWP for this training. Through funding from Autism DE and Highmark DE, Practice Without Pressure has also extended the program’s benefits to individuals and their families across the state.
