local oral health program (lohp)

Our Vision:

The Kings County Oral Health Program is for all families in Kings County to have the resources they need to prevent oral disease, for all children and youth in Kings County to have a dental home that provides both preventative and comprehensive restorative care, and for Kings County to have a coordinated infrastructure to promote oral health as an essential component of overall health. 

Did you know fluoride helps rebuild and strengthen tooth enamel that has been weakened by the bacteria that causes cavities?

Local Oral Health Program Tips:

  • Brush your teeth two times a day for 2 minutes with fluoride toothpaste.

  • Floss in between your teeth at least once a day.

  • Visit the dentist 2 times per year.
