The OHEC is now defunct
The Oral Health Excellence Collaborative (OHEC)
For the past fourteen years, oral health professionals, program providers, educators and advocates have been meeting as a task force to address the most common chronic disease of childhood—dental disease. Beginning in the fall of 2007, a planning effort got underway to formalize the relationships and intentions of the task force and develop the Oral Health Excellence Collaborative(OHEC). Representatives from the counties of Barnstable, Dukes and Nantucket identified resources, needs and opportunities to improve oral health for the most vulnerable residents of our region. Our wealth of community resources, history of collaboration and commitment to our mission led to the vision of a tri-county region where everyone has access to oral health care regardless of their ability to pay.
