Contracting is one of the service delivery methods that may be used to provide and/or increase access to dental care for health center service area populations.
The checklist is to assist health centers in determining if contracting is an appropriate strategy for providing dental services and for planning the implementation of contracting for dental services.
The implementation strategies document includes information NNOHA obtained through interviews conducted with health centers that are sustainably contracting for dental services. We have gathered promising practices from these organizations to assist health centers, both with and without on-site dental clinics, to implement contracting for dental services to increase access to dental care.
