Campaign for Children's Oral Health

When it comes to the oral health of children, we focus on providing preventive services in school-based or school-linked settings.

For 2017 and Children's Dental Health Month (February), OHA has joined other organizations in supporting Community Water Fluoridation (CWF), which has proven to be the simplest, safest, and most effective way for millions of Americans, including children, to receive preventive oral health care for the past 70 years.

Join OHA as we work for all children to have happy, healthier smiles!
