Health Promotion Unit (HPU)

Our mandate is to serve individuals and groups in the community who access our CCOH dental clinics with a focus on geriatrics and other underserved and at risk populations.

Objective: To improve the oral and overall health of communities we serve by providing prevention-focused health promotion programming alongside essential dental and dental hygiene treatment of existing disease. We are committed to increase the oral health knowledge, awareness and mouthcare skills of health care providers and caregivers through in-services, workshops and presentations. We work within CCOH program communities and key stake holders to identify and plan activities suited to the needs of that community in order to promote oral and overall health.
