THE WHOLE PERSON - INTEGRATED BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

At Community Health Centers we focus on integrated care that values the whole person. Our services encompass not only treatment and prevention of illness but also health, education and behavioral health services.

The Integrated Behavioral Health (IBH) program is available to patients as a part of overall good healthcare. The purpose of this service is to offer assistance when stress, worry, chronic health conditions, or emotional concerns about physical or other life problems are interfering with someone's daily life. The IBH provider works as a member of the primary care team. This team approach considers physical, behavioral, and emotional aspects of our patient's health.

DENTAL PREVENTION PROGRAM

The Dental Prevention Program serves children in Head Start, Early Head Start, WIC and elementary schools throughout Lane County. Onsite prevention clinics with portable equipment are set up onsite at all participating schools. These clinics offer dental hygiene assessments, teeth cleaning, fluoride varnish treatments, sealants, and education. Homecare packets include toothbrushes, toothpaste, and floss. Services are provided twice a year.
 

The goals and objectives of the Dental Prevention Program are:
     ~ To establish dental homes
     ~ To achieve HealthyPeople 2020 oral health goals by reducing the proportion of children with
        untreated decay, in primary and permanent teeth, increase the number of children with sealants in
        permanent molars, and reduce the overall incidence of decay.
     ~ To reach American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry goal of
        having first dental check up by eruption of first tooth or by one year of age.

Why provide dental prevention services to children?
     ~ 51 million school hours are lost each year due to dental disease. Healthy children learn better.
     ~ “On any given day, more than 5,000 children in Oregon are in school and suffering from dental pain
        or infection.” Oregon Department of Human Services, Oregon Smile Survey 2007.
     ~ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends school-based and school-linked sealant
        programs to reduce prevalence of dental disease. Cavities are a bacterial infection that may be
        prevented by sealants. Sealants seal out the germs that cause cavities in molars where 85% of
        dental disease occurs.
     ~ Cavities are the #1 chronic, infectious disease among children according to David Satcher, Oral
        Health in America: A Report of the Surgeon General, May 25, 2000.

 Why is cavity prevention important?
     ~ Dental infection affects, heart, lungs, and general health.
     ~ Dental disease is costly to restore, and may result is tooth loss.
     ~ Cavities may affect speech development and learning.Establishing healthy dental care habits leads
        to a lifetime of better health.
