Community Dental Health Coordinator Program
This program is designed for Certified Dental Assistants (CDAs) and Dental Hygienists (RDHs) who are interested in exploring community dental health.
Community Dental Health Coordinators (CDHC) are health care workers who help promote oral health in under-served communities. A CDHC is essentially a Community Health Worker (CHW) with an emphasized skill set related to oral health.
As a Community Dental Health Coordinator, you will be working under the direction of a Dentist and in partnership with a community clinic to provide oral health education, prevention intervention, low level dental care, and help to patients in need of adequate oral health care.
