Oral Health Education
Oral Health Programs
We start underserved children on the path to oral health young. That’s the premise behind the Early Smiles program in San Bernardino and Sacramento. With the Oral Health Action Coalition, we have joined forces with other organizations to tackle oral health concerns throughout the Inland Empire.
EARLY SMILES SAN BERNADINO
Early Smiles is a school-based program that serves Medicaid children lacking access to dental care. We’re able to assist preschool and elementary school kids with preventative dental care, instruct on healthy oral care habits, and connect them with the work they need when they need it.Learn More
EARLY SMILES SACRAMENTO
Early Smiles Sacramento was established in 2016 to help underserved children in Sacramento County with their dental care needs. Services include an oral health examination, oral hygiene instruction, topical application of fluoride, and more. We also help find dental services for the uninsured.Learn More
Oral Health Action Coalition - Inland Empire
The Oral Health Action Coalition - Inland Empire (OHAC-IE) started as a grassroots joint effort of Kaiser Permanente and the Center for Oral Health. We mobilize and organize local resources to increase access to oral health care and improve health outcomes throughout the Inland Empire region.Learn More
Oral Health Resources
Feel free to access our oral health resources anytime, anywhere. We offer both shorter fact sheets and longer research reports that cover a variety of important topics. These are geared towards anyone looking to grow in their understanding of oral health concerns and solutions today.
Our fact sheets are engaging and enlightening. These 2-4 page sheets offer insights into the oral health of older adults, including well-researched statistics and policy recommendations. We also offer a look into our Early Smiles Sacramento program to show you how we’re championing the cause of oral health among children.Learn More
Research is one of the pillars of our work at COH. We conduct research and release reports documenting oral health care needs of vulnerable populations, including older adults and children. These include more detailed insights into people groups we seek to help and programs that seek to help them.Learn More
