Got Smile? And School-Based Oral Health Program


UCHC’s Got Smile? program provides oral health education, hygiene supplies and preventative services to Douglas County. Take part in an interactive oral hygiene lesson, receive a hygiene kit with all the tools for good oral care and then come on board our Got Smile? Wagon for an oral assessment, fluoride varnish and molar sealants. To Keep oral health in the forefront and provide ongoing protection from decay, UCHC also recruits and trains parent volunteers to dispense fluoride rinse. This is all provided free of charge.

Reach Out and Read

UCHC is proud to be a certified “Reach Out and Read” site. Reach Out and Read is a national program that promotes literacy and reading readiness by bringing conversations about reading into the exam room during well child checks for children age 6 months to 5 years.

In addition to conversations about development and the importance of reading aloud to children, a new, age-appropriate book is given to the child for their personal library.

UCHC thanks the Bessie Minor Foundation and the Roseburg Altrusa for helping us with books for our Reach Out and Read program. We are always in need of donations of both new and gently used books (or, of course, funding to purchase them). For information on how to donate, please contact KGandy@umpquachc.org.
