With funding from the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) the Partnership to Reduce Oral Health Disparities in Early Childhood (PROHD) program was established. The project works to address children's oral health issues through the development of training materials, providing communication outlets related to pediatric oral health, and developing educational programs. The project is overseen by a 12-member steering committee made up of pediatricians and pediatric dentists. Find information on oral health projects, fluoride information, and health links.

Wisconsin Department of Health Services Oral Health Program
Oral health is essential to the general health and well-being of all Wisconsin residents and can be achieved by all residents. The word oral refers to the mouth. The mouth includes not only the teeth and gums (gingiva) and their supporting tissues, but also the hard and soft palate, the mucosal lining of the mouth and throat, the tongue, the lips, the salivary glands, the chewing muscles, and the upper and lower jaws. Equally important are the branches of the nervous, immune, and vascular systems that animate, protect, and nourish the oral tissues, as well as provide connections to the brain and the rest of the body. Find information on the background, fact sheets, other programs, task force, links, and partner resources. State specific programs include seal-a-smile, fluoride supplement, and donated dental services.
