Oral health is vital to overall health.
Access to oral health is a basic human right and there can be no equity in oral health until it is accessible to everyone. The Nutrition and Chronic Disease Prevention's (NCDP) Dental Health and Prevention (DHP) programs aim to promote the importance of oral health across the lifespan for all residents of Harris County. Our dental programs strive to meet residents where they are to provide the resources, assistance, and education they need in an environment most convenient for them.
The HCPH Dental Program has several clinics located across Harris County. Find locations, hours, and services offered here.
The HCPH Dental Program provides assistance to school districts across Harris County, outside of the Houston Independent School District, through multiple programs designed to promote oral health education and access to dental services.
