   Committee Reports

           Nominating Committee (Dixie Rogers{Chair}, Patty Craddock, Michael

            Ms. Rogers recommended that the elections be deferred until the October
            meeting due to a lack of attendance of officers. This recommendation was
            accepted. Therefore the CCOH 2005-2006 Election of Officers will be
            held on October 14, 2005 during the meeting.

            Neil, Victor Sandoval, Jean Wolff, CCSD representative {TBA})

            Ms. Rogers reported that the September 17, 2005 Quarterly Event was a great
            success. At this event 75 children received dental treatment with a total of
            $42,724 in dental services. All totals are not complete to this date and will be
            shared at the next meeting. Additionally, there was some concern regarding
            the poor attendance of Head Start children at this event. It was mentioned that
            the children were registered however due to unknown causes there was an
            “attendance challenge” wherein they did not show up for the event. Ms.
            Rogers and Dr. Mc Clain will be sorting out this situation.

            Ms. Chandler reported that the SAA Quarterly Reporting Invoice has been
            drafted and is under review for approval by Ms. Forsch. The contracted

            Dr. McClain reported that the UNLV dental students conducted the summer
            enrichment program at Renaldo Martinez Elementary where they provided
            oral health education and oral health supplies to 500 children. Furthermore,
            oral screenings were conducted on 350 children and 250 received fluoride
            varnish applications. No sealants were placed. This program was made
            possible because of the SAA donation of the portable dental equipment which
            the students utilized.

            Astley, Paul Schneider, Diane Ferrari, Chris Forsch, Rose Gaston, Steve

            successfully by the UNLV dental students for the Summer Enrichment
            Program. As of September 23rd the equipment has been reserved by Annette
            Lincicome, Huntridge Teen Center, and will be utilized while they move
            forward with the dental clinic remodel. Unsure of how long this will take the
            equipment will be reserved until the completion; possibly February 2006. Ms.
            Lincicome will keep CCOH up to date on the status of Huntridge.

Purchase of Portable Equipment

           No report.

The meeting returned to the Public Relations Committee report - Public Relations
Committee (Jenney Sartin {Chair}, Terri Chandler, Dixie Rogers, Carolyn Taylor, Candy
Schneider, Candace Thompson)

           Ms. Sartin explained that the PR Committee and the Education Committee
            held a joint meeting where they brainstormed ideas which will allow CCOH to
            move forward with PR options. Some of these ideas were to support data

6/21/2011                                                                             3
            collection regarding CCOH Programs, Medicaid stats and demographics of
            the dental practitioners in Clark County. Ms. Chandler shared information
            that the Oral Health Program was in the process of developing
            information regarding the CCOH Programs and that Ms. Forsch could
            provide an update at the next meeting. Ms. Rogers explained that the
            Southern Nevada Dental Society had a spread sheet with the SNDS
            members practice demographics and she could request a copy for the
            coalition. Ms. Rogers-Pokorny offered to convert the spread sheet into an
            Excel doc and email to Ms. Chandler.

           Ms. Sartin expressed concerns regarding the Oral Health America and CCOH
            partnership; specifically the fact that CCOH will need to invest a significant
            amount of time and effort in the partnership and that Oral Health America will
            retain 10 percent of all funds raised through Smiles Across America, Las
            Vegas. Ms. Sartin has past experience with fund raising and she believes that
            the set up, relationship development and meeting arranging are the hardest
            part of fund raising. Additionally, CCOH would benefit from establishment
            of a Speaker’s Bureau; members who will be prepared and educated with the
            appropriate facts and information to be successful in a fund raising
            presentation. Ms. Whitman suggested that a Committee be formed to research
            other fund raising ideas, the relationship with OHA and seek other CCOH
            members who have grant writing and fund raising experience. The following
            individuals were appointed to the Fund Raising Committee:

                Nancy Whitman (Chair)
                Jenney Sartin
                Dixie Rogers
                Sue Brooks
                Millie McClain

            This new Committee will report back at next months meeting. Ms. Whitman
            also mentioned that Patricia Durbin from Great Basin Primary Care will be in
            Las Vegas September 26, 27, 28, 2005 if anyone needs to speak with her. Ms.
            Chandler will provide contact information of all members to Ms.
            Whitman via email.
