Seventy thousand copies in
English and 1,500 copies in French have been distributed to the provinces, on request. Twenty-six thousand copies in French, which had been distributed but in which there was later found to be a printing error, are being recalled. Repeat orders have been received from some provinces.
The printing order, against which only partial delivery has been made, was for
100,000 copies in English and 35,000 copies in French. The expected total cost is approximately $2,000.
This folder was prepared by the dental health division to meet the request of provincial health educators for dental health material designed specifically for junior elementary school children.
During preparation, draft texts and layout were sent to the Canadian Dental Association for evaluation and criticism. Additional drafts were sent to the provincial health educators with the request that evaluation reports as to accuracy and suitability be secured from provincial directors of dental divisions, from public health departments of provincial dental associations, from parent-teacher groups, public health officials, etc. In response 33 reports were obtained; there was no criticism of the technical content-in fact the folder aroused very favourable comment. There was complete agreement on the part of dental bodies consulted that the pamphlet was factual and technically correct.
