Children's Health and Maintenance Plan (CHAMP)

To ensure treatment for those children with caries, the CHAMP program organizes the dental screenings in schools and makes personal family contact until any problems are resolved. The statistical outcomes provide information on the effectiveness of the ALQI program and are provided to the schools, used for grant writing, and for research. In 2003 CHAMP expanded to include collection of BMI data. In 2012 CHAMP began its busing program whereby, with parental permission, children are picked up at school by the CHAMP bus, taken to Scott County Dental Clinic for treatment, and returned to school.
