We Are An Organization Promoting Oral Health Services, Education, Research & Policy Since 1985
Most Americans have access to excellent oral health care—but not all Americans. That’s why Center for Oral Health (COH) exists. For nearly 40 years, we have committed ourselves to improving oral health in vulnerable populations through dental services, education, research, and advocacy.
What We Do
We offer oral health services at standalone clinics and through school-based programs in California. We help low income families, the elderly, the disabled, and more.
Oral Health Education
We teach the community about the importance of oral health and connect them with dental professionals. We also train dental and non-dental providers on preventive oral health services.
Oral Health Research
We conduct research and release reports documenting oral health care needs of vulnerable populations. We partner with other organizations to better understand oral health issues.
Oral Health Awareness
We provide policy and programmatic recommendations to improve the oral health of vulnerable populations. We also raise awareness with the public and legislators to achieve this goal.
Our Dental Clinics & Programs
COH currently offers dental clinics and programs within California for underserved populations. We’re fighting the good fight of oral health one smile at a time.
