the annual spring rabies clinic is back!

 

we are now accepting proposals for oral health providers to support oral disease and injury prevention and/or
school dental sealant programs in Somerset County!

The Somerset County Health Department (SCHD) is announcing a request for proposals
(RFP) for oral health providers to support oral disease and injury prevention and/or
school dental sealant programs in Somerset County, Maryland. Funding for these
programs is provided by the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Office of Oral
Health (OOH). The purpose of this grant is to help providers build and sustain capacity to provide oral

oral health for underserved children through efficient and effective interventions.
