School-Based Comprehensive Oral Health Services
The School-Based Comprehensive Oral Health Services (SBCOHS) grant program seeks to demonstrate successful integration of comprehensive oral health care into an existing school-based health center (SBHC). SBCOHS projects deliver high-quality oral health education and preventive and restorative services to students in preschool, elementary school, or middle school with the greatest need. By augmenting an existing SBHC delivery system with culturally competent, comprehensive, high-quality oral health care and education, SBCOHS projects demonstrate effective ways to strengthen existing SBHC capacity. SBCOHS projects also respond to children’s and adolescents’ oral health needs and increase access to oral health services for underserved populations at high risk for dental caries, including children and adolescents enrolled in Medicaid and in the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
