For four years, five pilot programs used the Smart Mouths Smart Kids Data Collection Tool in school-based oral health programs to input oral health information — Northeast Colorado Health Department, San Juan Basic Health School Program, Kids in Need of Dentistry, Smiles for Students, and Chaffee County Oral Health Program. A total of 3,115 students were screened using DCT during this timeframe.
The pilot communities share:
- “I talked to my assistant at the schools, and she said SMSK is very user-friendly. She has no problem entering the data.”
- “I’ve used multiple data systems in my tenure and think it is one of the better ones I’ve experienced.”
- “We rate the system 3.5/5 for ease. It is a great data base system.”
- “I would rate the east of entering at a 4 out of 5.”
