About the Maternal and Child Health Bureau

The Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) is located within the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. MCHB's objective for oral health is to promote comprehensive, community-based oral health care services that combine public and private delivery systems, maximize the effectiveness of Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program, and encourage the application of science to practice to reduce disease burden.

Oral health activities are supported by Title V Maternal and Child Health Services Block Grants as well as by Special Projects of Regional and National Significance, which support a broad range of innovative strategies. Several different project categories have been funded.
