SFCHC Awarded $100,000 through L.A. Care Health Plan’s Oral Health Initiative IX, for 2016-2017.

In May 2017, San Fernando Community Health Center was awarded $100,000 by L.A. Care Health Plan’s Community Health Investment Fund (CHIF) 2016 -2017.  The Oral Health Initiative IX (OHI IX) funding has allowed SFCHC to expand our dental clinic access by opening on alternate Saturdays and building our dental provider team by increasing our dental workforce. SFCHC added more dentist hours, another day of dental hygiene services and have added more registered dental assistants to assist our great dental team.  The award has been a blessing for our community since access to quality, low-cost oral health services remains one of the greatest of unmet health needs in the San Fernando Valley.  L.A. Care Health Plan has consistently worked to provide resources for community clinics so that the needs of the community can be met.  San Fernando Community Health Center deeply appreciates the support of L.A. Care Health Plan.
