Did you know that over 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental-related illness? Tooth decay is one of the top reasons children visit their school nurses. Many children with cavities and pain in their mouth can not concentrate in school and are frequently absent due to dental pain.
Cook Children's is committed to improving the health status of every child in the region which includes working collaboratively to prevent oral health disease. In 1999 the Children's Oral Health Coalition (COHC), led by the Community Health Outreach Department at Cook Children's, was formed to improve children's oral health for underserved children in our county through community collaboration.
