OHRC responds to the needs of professionals working in states and communities with the goal of improving oral health services for pregnant women, infants, children, adolescents, including those with special health care needs, and their families. The resource center supports health professionals, program administrators, educators, policymakers, and others, particularly those working in or with state maternal and child (MCH) programs. The resource center collaborates with government agencies, professional associations, foundations, policy and research centers, and voluntary organizations to gather, develop, and share information and materials to promote sustainable oral health services for the MCH population.
