Advocating for Accessibility and Efficiency: Oral Health Access & Supervision Program (OHASP)


Oral Health Ohio has convened a committee to explore opportunities to reduce barriers and increase access to oral health care under the Oral Health Access & Supervision Program (OHASP).  

OHASP was created by the Ohio General Assembly in 2010 and allows dental hygienists with additional required education to practice under relaxed supervision in certain designated underserved locations outside of the dental office without the presence of a dentist. 

Underserved locations include nursing homes, schools in dental health resource shortage areas, Head Start programs, WIC clinics, and other locations to serve populations who have difficulty accessing dental care.

Stay tuned for updates on work coming out of this committee.
