COH and WesternU

In late 2012, the Center for Oral Health (COH) relocated its headquarters to Southern California after nearly 30 years in the Bay Area. This decision was not made lightly. The Center for Oral Health’s new headquarters are located at the Western University of Health Sciences campus in Pomona, offering a unique opportunity to support our common goal of bringing together expertise in education, advanced care and research, to provide unparalleled opportunities for oral health care innovation and improve access to care.

The relocation and unique affiliation with Western University, particularly the College of Dental Medicine, will strengthen the Center for Oral Health’s presence in California, allow the organization to more efficiently respond to the needs of vulnerable populations in the Los Angeles and Inland Empire areas, and increase opportunities to build stronger strategic partnerships with academia and researchers to better advance the State of California’s oral health agenda.
