Indigie grins

 

Overview

Indigie grins is an Indigenous-specific project that aims to improve the oral health of youth aged 5-12 years in rural Western Victoria. The one-year project links Indigenous health care workers and non-Indigenous oral health services. It is funded by the Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV), and led by Western District Health Service, the Melbourne Dental School at the University of Melbourne, and the Winda Mara Aboriginal Cooperative. Indigie grins involves oral health assessments, digital imaging, clinical assessment, and focus group discussions with family members of Indigenous children. It also aims to examine Indigenous cultural values and beliefs focusing on oral health.
