Center for Oral Health

“While most Americans have access to the best oral health care in the world, low-income children suffer disproportionately from oral disease.”

Michael K. Simpson



Our Mission is to improve oral health, especially of vulnerable populations, through innovation, research, education and advocacy.



Our Vision has remained unchanged since our funding in 1985: Oral Health for All.

Integrated Delivery Model


An Integrated Delivery Model is an alternative to the Federally Qualified Health Center model and aims at achieving the Triple Aim by improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction); improving the health of populations; and reducing the per capita cost of health care. Over time, the average cost of a dental visit in the proposed Integrated Delivery System model will be less than $90.00. In contrast, the average payment per encounter (visit) at a Federally Qualified Health Center in Florida is $131.27. The proposed model represents savings of over $100.00 per capita.
