Proposal to create Center for Oral Health at UMDNJ approved by Assembly panel

Proposal to create Center for Oral Health at UMDNJ approved by Assembly panel

Part of effort to promote dental care among children

The proposal would establish the New Jersey Center for Oral Health at the New Jersey Dental School of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.

"Research suggests that oral health mirrors our overall health," Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen) said. "Poor oral health can lead to so many other health problems, so it's important that we as a state join in a collaborative effort to combat this problem. Health care costs are driving force behind so many of our economic problems, and if we can tackle one aspect of it with this effort, we'll be better off as a state."
