Welcome to the New York State Oral Health Center of Excellence website. The Center was established in Regional Primary Care Network, Rochester, NY by the New York State Department of Health Division of Maternal and Child Health in 2014 to provide statewide assistance to communities, local health departments, health care institutions, and school-based health centers to improve population oral health and enhance access to evidence-based oral health services in New York State. Please learn more about us and what we do by exploring this website. We look forward to working with you for healthy smiles in your community.
