Regional Oral Health Consultants (ROHCs)

The MSDH Regional Oral Health Consultants (ROHCs) strive to improve the oral health of all Mississippians by assisting county health departments to deliver age-appropriate oral health anticipatory guidance and preventive oral health services in each public health district. ROHCs are Registered Dental Hygienists that promote information sharing between health professionals and community stakeholders to educate the public about the importance of good oral health, and reduce the burden of oral disease. ROHCs will:

  • Conduct oral health surveillance and screening activities;
  • Provide oral health education and guidance for health department staff, health professionals and the public;
  • Enable collaborative partners to plan and implement effective oral health prevention strategies, such as tooth brushing programs, dietary supplemental fluoride programs, weekly fluoride mouth rinse programs, and preventive dental sealant programs; and
  • Promote the benefits of having a community water fluoridation program.
