Delta Dental Funds Dental Home Coach

The Delta Dental Foundation has generously given the College of Dentistry $450,000 to fund the successful Dental Home Coach program of the Ohio Project for another three years. The Division of Pediatric Dentistry supports the Coach Program with faculty, residents and fellows to provide care to children throughout Franklin and adjoining counties at schools and other facilities. Dr. Ashok Kumar is the Division faculty member in charge of the Coach Program for Pediatric Dentistry and he has been instrumental in its success over the last several years.

The Coach serves the Columbus Public Schools and other agencies in the Columbus metropolitan area. It is a state-of-the-art facility with digital radiography and modern patient-friendly behavior electronics. The Coach has 3 dental operatories, two of which are in one room and the other used as a quiet room with nitrous oxide capability. The Coach is staffed by a pediatric dentist, two dental assistants and a coordinator.
