What We Do

Our Four Pillars

What we do at Center for Oral Health is built upon four pillars: innovative dental services, educational opportunities, helpful research, and public policy/awareness. This blend of activities allows us to serve the oral health needs of vulnerable populations on a variety of levels.

Dental Services

We offer standalone and school-based dental clinics in select California cities for those in need. We help low income families and parents, the elderly, the disabled, and more.

We teach children and others on the importance of oral health and connect them with dental professionals. We also train dental and non-dental providers on preventive oral health services.

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.
