 Since 1998, the College of Dentistry has worked with the state of Ohio to develop a statewide oral health plan to improve access to oral health services for residents of Ohio. In concert with this statewide plan, the College has transformed its curriculum to meet the goal of 60 days of service learning by senior dental students through its pipeline program known as the OHIO (Oral HealthImprovement through OutreachProject.

Currently, senior students spend 50 to 60 full days providing community-based oral health care at 21 facilities throughout the state of Ohio.  

Project Accomplishments include:

  1. Students currently spend 50 to 60 full days in community sites.
  2. The OHIO Project has a mandatory two-credit hour course component for all fourth-year students. 
  3. Graduation credit for most procedures is given for activity in community sites.
  4. The quantity of service has been documented and improved with the inclusion of students in community clinics.  The quality of care has been evaluated and documented to be standard or above standard quality through supervision by the adjunct faculty dentists.
  5. The clinical curriculum has been modified to include community-based clinical experiences in the first and second year. Modification has been made in the didactic curricula to include mandatory cultural competency class and an overview of community dentistry.
  6. An on-site and community six-week summer program for 11th and 12th grade students seeking a career in dentistry has been developed and successfully implemented for three years.
  7. An undergraduate summer D.A.T. Prep program has been developed to help underrepresented minority students better prepare for the standardized admissions test.
  8. A post-baccalaureate program is in place to strengthen a specific candidate’s background and skills in basic biological sciences and perceptual ability.
  9. Students have a greater perception of need because of the OHIO Project. 
  10. Relationships have been built with safety net clinics throughout Ohio expanding the employment opportunities of new graduates in community dentistry.
