Early Childhood Oral Health Assessment (ECOHA)
The ECOHA is a digital survey for home visitors to identify children’s risk for dental disease and provide families with tailored education, resources, and connections to dental care.
Home Visitors and Oral Health
Despite being largely preventable, dental caries—tooth decay—is the number one chronic disease among children. It is especially prevalent among low-income children of color. Keeping children healthy at home is one of the best strategies for avoiding dental disease. The goal of ECOHA is to empower home visitors to address the oral health needs of young children by using technology.
