Children's Oral Health Initiative

The Children's Oral Health Initiative (COHI) is an early childhood prevention program for children aged 0-7, their parents and caregivers and pregnant women.

COHI services focus on dental screening, fluoride varnish applications, sealants, dental cleanings and interim stabilization technique (IST), as well as oral health education and information.

A FFTAHS dental hygienist and a community-based COHI aide deliver the program at the community level for children residing on one of the 10 First Nations.
