Marin Oral Health Strategic Plan Implementation
In 2018, the Oral Health Program received funding from the State to develop a local oral health plan. The plan is intended to provide oral health education, dental disease prevention and linkage to treatment and case management of dental disease including dental disease caused by the use of cigarettes and other tobacco products. The Marin Oral Health Program, working closely with the Marin Oral Health Advisory Committee, completed an Oral Health Needs Assessment and an Oral Health Community Health Improvement Plan.
