Behavior change interventions that target causal mechanisms

Instead of building interventions that target identified causal mechanisms of DOC disorder, including oral health disparities, the current state of BSSR draws on descriptive and correlational data to build complex, multi-level interventions intended to address as many possible drivers of DOC disorder as possible. Building interventions that test how and for whom interventions produce their effects, in addition to whether they "work", may accelerate oral public health advances.
