Improving Children's Dental Health

Tooth decay is the most common, preventable chronic disease among children in the US. And in Ohio, one out of every four children has not had an annual dental visit.

CareQuest Institute and Oral Health Ohio are collaborating on an innovative program (MORE Care™) that partners physicians and dentists to provide whole-person health care to more than 15,000 underserved children across five counties in Ohio. 

MORE Care looks at the whole picture and doesn’t just break it up into slices. So now both the dental and the primary care providers approach the diagnosis and treatment of the patients together — a more integrated approach.”
