This application involves a study of Aboriginal children enrolled in a randomised controlled trial called the Baby Teeth Talk study. The current goal is to follow-up children & their families involved in the study to determine long-term effectiveness of the preventive health program on dental, nutritional, anthropometric, cognitive & psychosocial outcomes. Because ours is the only richly characterised birth cohort of South Australian Aboriginal children, our findings have potential to yield valuable insights into the health and development of one of Australia’s most vulnerable child populations.
