The Division of Oral Health (DOH) serves as a national resource for activities to prevent oral diseases and to improve oral health. DOH can provide information on fluoridation, dental sealants, activities being conducted by state oral health programs, and statistics on oral disease and use of dental services. DOH also provides technical assistance to State public health agencies and works with the professional dental community on issues related to the promotion of oral health and infection control in dental offices.


Resource lists of educational materials on benefits of community water fluoridation are available, as are several publications on community-based preventive strategies, including school-based dental sealant programs, and infection control in dentistry.
