Abstract

This paper is the first of two reviewing the Childsmile programme. It sets out to describe the development and implementation of this national oral health improvement programme for children in Scotland over its initial three-year period (January 2006 to December 2008) and into its second phase of development. It outlines the context in which the initiative was conceived, the initial development of its various components, and how monitoring and evaluation are shaping the delivery and direction of the programme.
