Strong teeth is an interactive computer CD targeted at older kids, teenagers and new mothers and encourages better oral health practices. The project is aimed at talking more with Aboriginal people in communities and finding better solutions for people to look after their teeth. The CD uses photos from different Aboriginal communities in Central Australia and animated characters to teach people healthy eating, regular brushing of teeth and for new mothers, caring for their baby's teeth. The CD has also been translated in English and two Central Australian Indigenous languages - Arrernte and Warlpiri. The CD was funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) and developed by the Department of Health and Community Services and the Australian Research Centre for Population Oral Health from the University of Adelaide.
