First Tooth Advisory Board

Throughout the duration of the three-year Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) workforce grant, the First Tooth Advisory Board met to provide advice and oversight for the project. It was instrumental in the identification and optimization of resources to sustain the First Tooth project beyond the three-year grant period. Many of the members are still involved with the project as part of the Oregon Oral Health Coalition (OrOHC).

If you are interested in joining OrOHC's First Tooth Advisory Committee, please contact Philip Giles at philip.giles@ocdc.net or 971-224-1038.
