In 2014, Washington Dental Service Foundation, DHM Research and Latina Creative Agency designed and conducted English and Spanish-language focus groups around the Seattle-area and in Eastern Washington. The goal was to gain a better understanding of the knowledge, attitudes and behaviors regarding oral health among low- to moderate-income Latina mothers and teenagers. Results of this research will be used to improve oral health of Latino children by advancing WDSF’s Latino Children’s Initiative, as well as inform efforts to reduce existing disparities, and addressing barriers to care for Latino children in Washington State.
