Improve Total Health and Wellbeing of Tehama County Community by providing Education, Support and Access to Oral Health Services.
Tehama County clinics are actively collaborating and working towards operating a Virtual Dentistry mobile clinic to provide greater access to dental services.
To complete our Community Health Improvement Plan we collaborated with local dental providers and surveyed community members to determine our goals:
Educational presentations, resources, and materials on oral health, water fluoridation, and tobacco prevention
Participation in health fairs and outreach events
Collaborate with partners to improve local access to dental care
Provide training for Fluoride Varnish application to medical providers, schools and other local agencies
Collaborate with the state to conduct sealant clinics
Promote oral health through a variety of media sources
Work with providers to create a referral system for pregnant women to receive preventative dental exams
Engage and expand the Public Health Advisory Board Dental Committee
