Oral Health: Prevention & Education
CHP ensures that patients of all ages receive linguistically and culturally appropriate education about oral health and preventive care. Our care is customized to each patient.
Pediatric Dental Care
Good oral hygiene begins with infancy–and with parent education. CHP is dedicated to providing parent-friendly information about pediatric oral health and ensures quality care for infants and children of all ages.
Our offices are child-friendly, and our professional staff is thoroughly trained in all aspects of pediatric oral health care.
Prenatal & Infant Oral Health
Dental health and proper nutrition are both essential for expectant mothers and new infants. During pregnancy, changes in estrogen and progesterone levels can cause changes in a mother’s oral health, which might require attention. For an infant, baby teeth begin to surface at about four months.
Oral Health Care for the Elderly
At CHP, we take special care to tend to the oral health needs of our elderly patients, and we are sensitive to those patients who are living on a fixed income.
Oral Cancer Screening
Our practices maintain a painless, non-invasive oral mucosal examination system for the early detection of abnormal tissue.
Our office is handicap accessible. We offer personalized assistance for handicapped patients, including special planning and management of treatment for patients with complex medical or physical needs.
We take special care in making appointments that keep the number and length of visits to a minimum.
Family Dental Outreach
CHP outreach staff conduct publicized health screenings and education in well-known, accessible locations throughout the community at town halls, libraries, faith-based organizations, schools, workplaces, councils on aging, low-income housing, and community centers, reaching those in need of dental care.
Many thanks to the Massachusetts Dental Society Foundation and the Oral Health Foundation for their generous support.
