Partners & Funders

COH has been a leader in public oral health for over 30 years. Since our founding in 1985, the Center for Oral Health (COH) has operated successful programs and projects that aim to improve the public’s oral health, prevent dental disease and institute policies that help vulnerable populations gain access to oral health care. We operate primarily in California but many of our programs have had nationwide impact.
