Central Valley health centers are receiving nearly $875,000 from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services to expand oral health services.
A total of 65 health centers in California will receive a combined total of $24.1 million. Of that, Camarena Health in Madera was awarded $350,000 and United Health Centers of the San Joaquin Valley in Parlier will get $524,999.
“Oral health is an important part of our overall physical health and well-being,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell. “The funding we are awarding will reduce barriers to quality dental care for hundreds of thousands of Americans by bringing new oral health providers to health centers across the country.”
