OPTION 1: HEALTH CENTER WITH NO CURRENT DENTAL SERVICES
Resources | OHI Toolkit
There are two strategies that health centers that do not have current dental services can utilize for adding dental services: New Start-Ups and Contracting for Dental Services.
Contracting for Dental Services
Health centers that do not currently have on-site dental services and are unable to build-out a brick and mortar dental clinic, may consider contracting with outside dental providers to provide access to dental care services.
The most common strategy for adding dental services for health centers that do not currently offer dental services is to build-out a brick and mortar dental clinic that will offer direct services.
