Oral Health

The Center for Rural Health works in a variety of ways to address oral health issues in North Dakota. We support North Dakota rural communities in addressing oral health issues by:

  • Evaluating unmet needs and existing workforce capacity for oral healthcare statewide
  • Examining the impact of efforts to improve access to dental services
  • Analyzing oral health data and oral health status in the State
  • Collaborating to provide resources for best practices and proposed models of oral healthcare
  • Assessing oral health services among long term care facilities
  • Researching knowledge of pediatric oral health preventative measures among clinic providers

The Center for Rural Health’s Rural Health Information Hub lists additional oral health information and resources.
