Screen Time Study

In this study, we are examining whether there is an association between screen time and oral behaviours, such as jaw clenching, in young adolescents 10-17 years of age. The study includes two parts, an online 10-minute survey, and a 100-minute session at our research lab. All participants in the online survey will be entered into a raffle that will award $25 Amazon eGift Cards (1 gift card to 10 participants). If participants are selected to join the second part of the study in our lab, they will receive $30 compensation (cash).
