UCLA Center for Children's Oral Health
The UCLA Center for Children's Oral Health (UCCOH) is a multidisciplinary initiative utilizing evidence-based research translated to clinical care in order to achieve policy developments and advocacy in in the interest of improving children’s oral health for Los Angeles, California, the United States, and the world.
The program, established in 2015 and lead by Dr. Francisco Ramos-Gomez, builds, strengthens, and coordinates our activities in children’s oral health through developing and supporting inter-professional education in our pediatric training program with the UCLA Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing and Public Health.
To reduce oral health disparities the program advances minimally invasive pediatric treatment services and oral health research as well as expands knowledge of risk assessment and disease management. Working with community partners the program supports advocacy for policy and reimbursement changes in medical and dental care.
