Oral Health Toolkit for School Based Health Centers (SBHCs)
This toolkit is to provide SBHCs with various kinds of resources aimed at: connecting clients with existing oral health services in their area, integrating oral health services into their SBHCs and schools as well as different types of publications around childhood/young adulthood oral health and oral health services in school settings.
It was developed by the Oregon Oral Health Coalition’s K-12 Committee, which is committed to increasing in-school access to oral health services, advance education outcomes, increase school attendance and improve the overall health and wellness for Oregon’s K-12 population.
