History/Overview

Thanks to the leadership and funding from the Green Bay Rotary Club, "Healthy Teeth, Healthy Kids," a mobile, in-school dental clinic (school-based program) was created in 2005. In conjunction with this initiative, Oral Health Partnership (OHP) incorporated as a non-profit in 2007 to continue the work started by the Green Bay Rotary Club. In 2007, OHP opened its first fixed-site dental clinic at the Howe Resource Center and continued to expand with the opening of a dental clinic at the Salvation Army Kroc Center in 2011.  In January 2017 with a large donation from Delta Dental of Wisconsin, OHP opened its third clinic - OHP West - on the west side.

Since OHP's start in September 2007, more than 150,000 dental visits have been provided, and 20,000+ patients have been seen. Through OHP's fixed-site clinics and school-based program, a comprehensive service model is being provided, which allows OHP to meet the continually growing dental needs of a vulnerable child and youth population throughout Brown County.
