Tools for Developing and Operating a Safety Net Dental Clinic

Action Guides & Toolkits

  • Action Guide - "Oral Health and the Patient-Centered Health Home"
    As part of a cooperative agreement with HRSA, NNOHA conducted a needs assessment of Health Center Dental Directors and follow-up interviews with nine “early adopter” organizations that have made substantial progress integrating oral health into the PCHH. The results of the survey are compiled in this "Action Guide."
  • Health Center Advocacy Toolkit
    This toolkit serves as a resource to help educate health center advocates about Community Health Center and advocacy basics. The most important thing you can do as an advocate is to TAKE ACTION!
