CINCINNATI -- The idea of a dental care center within a local school was born after a 2012 Junior League of Cincinnati community advisors meeting looked at top unmet community needs.

The grand opening of the Delta Dental Center at Oyler School will be held Monday.

The Junior League of Cincinnati (JLC) and the Children’s Hospital Health Network (COHN) teamed up to make the center come to life.

After the advisor meeting in 2012, JLC implemented the Pediatric Oral Health project to serve community children.

According to JLC, there are nearly 200,000 unmet dental care needs among children in Hamilton County alone.

The Delta Dental Center at Oyler School will be available for students on the Oyler School campus and surrounding schools from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on school days.

A full-time dentist and at least four other dental professionals will staff the center, according to a press release.

Parents of students can call the clinic and make appointments for their children at (513) 363-4135.
