Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are twice as likely to develop dental decay. This scoping review initiates a systematic search of literature to identify the role of indigenous health workers, including community health workers, in promoting maternal oral health globally, with the aim of improving child oral health through strengthened maternal oral care and care seeking. It indicates that there are few studies on the role of indigenous health workers in supporting maternal oral care and no screening tools specific designed for use by indigenous health providers.
