Sullivan County Oral Health Collaborative (SCOHC) was established in March of 2004 to identify oral health needs and create access to dental care in Sullivan County. This collaboration of community leaders includes the Claremont Dental Initiative, Pathways of the River Valley, West Central Behavioral Health, Valley Regional Hospital, New London Hospital, United Way of Sullivan County, Claremont Kiwanis, and representatives from the dental community and public. The result of the collaborative’s work is Community Dental Care of Claremont
The development of our dental center was overseen by the Sullivan County Oral Health Collaborative, Inc, (SCOHC), a nonprofit established to plan and implement a community dental care center in Sullivan County.
SCOHC’s multi-level business plan creates access, while uniquely serving those most in need. As a non-profit, all profits from private and public payments go back into the business to create more access for all.
Dentistry for all
Poor dental health has a negative effect on all aspects of life. It leads to increased absenteeism in both the work place and school. SCOHC recognizes that access to dental care affects everyone in Sullivan County. The need for access stretches across all age groups and all economic situations. This practice has begun to fill a void that is greatly needed. We welcome all infants, toddlers, children, adolescents and adults of Sullivan County.
