Ensuring Access to Dental Care for All

As a safety net dental practice, the Dental Center of Northwest Ohio is quite aware of the people who fall through the cracks of the healthcare system.

We’ve joined hands with state and local agencies focused on bridging gaps to ensure appropriate and timely access to treatment for those who have barriers to dental care. Members of the Dental Center staff represent organizational interests at the state level on the Children’s Oral Health Action Team and in the Ohio Rural Health Association.

Locally, we participate in Healthy Lucas County, Minority Health Commission, Covering Family and Kids, Early Childhood Coordinating Committee, and a variety of Health Advisory Committees for local Head Start programs.
