Title V MCH Services Block Grant Oral Health Toolkit
The Center for Oral Health Systems Integration and Improvement (COHSII) consortium promotes oral health knowledge and skills. COHSII works with key stakeholders to improve systems of care in support of a quality improvement, patient-centered approach to addresses the oral health needs of the MCH population. COHSII serves as a center of excellence in oral health technical assistance and training and resource development for the public health community.
Over the 4-year project period (2017–2021), COHSII is addressing three goals (1) providing technical assistance and training to states and MCHB-funded oral health projects, (2) establishing a set of MCH oral health quality indicators, and (3) developing and disseminating resources.
OHRC will also work with five state Title V MCH agencies and primary care settings to implement strategies to improve the integration of oral health care into primary care.
The consortium is led by OHRC working in collaboration with the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors and the Dental Quality Alliance. COHSII is supported by a cooperative agreement (U44MC30806) from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration.
