Mission:
In 1992, The PRASAD Project partnered with the Sullivan County public health agency and the New York State Bureau of Dental Health to explore an urgent need expressed by the community’s accessible dental care for low-income children. At that time, no dentist in the community treated children under the age of seven or took Medicaid. A 1995 survey showed that 75 percent of children from low-income homes needed immediate dental care. In response, The PRASAD Project initiated the PRASAD Children’s Dental Health Program (CDHP) of NY in 1996.
Results:
In the past decade, PRASAD CDHP has served more than 59,000 children, providing more than 165,000 procedures, at over 17 different community sites in Sullivan and Ulster Counties.
