You are being invited to participate in a brief survey to identify current health policies ( both general and oral health policies) in your country that may influence young children's oral health and risk of developing Early Childhood Caries.
The purpose of this survey is to identify existing policies and guidelines aimed at promoting good oral health of infants, toddlers and preschool children.
THE SURVEY WILL ONLY TAKE ABOUT 5 MINUTES OF YOUR TIME TO COMPLETE.
Although caries continues to be a burden in both developed and developing countries, it is not often a national priority. This short survey was created by an international research group interested in Early Childhood Caries- the Early Childhood Advocacy Group(ECCAG).
All responses to this survey will be anonymous and will not be linked to you. Once the survey is concluded and the data analyzed, the summary findings will be validated and shared widely though a published manuscript and abstract presentations. If you would like the result of the survey to be shared with you, please do let us know.
If have any questions or comments about the survey please feel free to contact Dr. Balgis Gaffar (the Principal Investigator; email@example.com).
Completing and returning the survey indicates your consent to participate.
