Overview

Self-reported by organization

The Children’s Dental Health Project (CDHP), the voice for children’s oral health, is a national nonprofit that advances evidence-based, cost-effective solutions to improve the oral health of children and their families. Tooth decay is the leading chronic condition in children, five times more common than asthma.

• The Children’s Dental Health Project led the charge for inclusion of pediatric oral health services in the Affordable Care Act, extending care to an estimated 4-5 million more children.

• We are currently working to identify the most promising early interventions for early childhood caries; results could influence the future course of childhood dental disease management.

• States and advocacy groups use our state health plan comparison tool to analyze and build state oral health capacity in 40 states.

• With the American University School of Law, we created the first and only community water fluoridation legal database, FLUIDlaw.org.

• CDHP promoted a healthy start for infants and their oral health by developing and promoting dental guidelines for treating pregnant women. Just 38% of pregnant moms visit the dentist; without an exam and possible needed treatment, they can pass dental disease to their babies.

Program 1

National Maternal and Child Oral Health Policy Center

The National Maternal and Child Oral Health Policy Center promotes the understanding of effective policy options to address ongoing disparities in children’s oral health. The  initiative, funded through the Federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau(http://www.mchb.hrsa.gov/) , has set out to map a course for improving the oral health of families by building knowledge and skills of professionals with the ability to steer systems changes. The Policy Center is focused on three goals.
Goal 1: Enhance Knowledge. Identify, analyze, and promote new information for policymakers and key stakeholders to improve MCH oral health policies and practices.
Goal 2: Build Capacity. Build awareness, skills, and knowledge among policymakers and key stakeholders to actively promote new and effective oral health policies.
Goal 3: Expand the community. Expand and diversify the audience engaged in promoting the oral health of MCH populations.
