Children’s Oral Health Initiative (COHI):

The Children’s Oral Health Initiative (COHI) was developed as a means to address the disparity between the oral health of First Nations and Inuit and that of the general Canadian population.

COHI focuses on the prevention of dental disease and promotion of good oral health practices. The goal of COHI is to shift the emphasis from a primarily treatment-based approach to a more balanced prevention and treatment focus. The initial focus for oral health promotion will be directed at three target groups:

  • – pregnant women and primary caregivers;
  • – pre-school children, 0-4 years of age; and
  • – school children, 5-7 years of age.

COHI offers the following preventative services:

  • – Dental Screenings – visual check without radiography
  • – Fluoride Varnish applications
  • – Dental Sealants
  • – Health Education- prenatal classes, health fairs, oral hygiene instruction
