About the Oral Health Program

The Local Oral Health Program (LOHP) is a state-wide program funded by the Research and Prevention Tobacco Tax Act of 2016 (Prop 56) and administered through the California Department of Public Health, Office of Oral Health. The LOHP's mission is to improve the oral health of all Fresno County residents through the prevention, education, linkage to dental treatment, and through organized community efforts.  The LOHP will assess the oral health needs of the community, develop an Oral Health Needs Assessment, Oral Health Evaluation Plan, and strategic action plan to address the oral health needs of the community.
