Oral Health

Oral health is essential for general health and well-being. Oral health problems affect not only the ability to eat and speak but are inter-connected with serious health issues like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, and preterm or low birth weight. But the good news is that oral health problems are preventable. A healthy smile for life starts with healthy habits like brushing and flossing, using fluoride, making smart food choices and eating habits, and visiting the dentist at least yearly.

While the Missouri Oral Health Program does not offer direct care such as extractions, prosthetics/dentures, composite and silver fillings, and professional cleanings, we are committed to improving the oral health of all Missourians through education, prevention and leadership. We believe that healthy Missourians for life begins with access to, and availability of, quality primary healthcare services for all Missourians.

The Missouri Oral Health Program is proud to partner with the Missouri Dental Association and Missouri Primary Care Association. These agencies provide additional resources on their websites to assist individuals in locating dental services.

The Missouri Dental Association (MDA) has a search engine to assist individuals in locating dental clinics in their area. Their site also lists clinics that provide Uninsured and Low Income Resources.
The Missouri Primary Care Association website has a complete listing of Community Health Centers that offer dental services on a sliding fee schedule.
