The Facts

About Us

Health Promotion Specialists (HPS) was created in June 2000 as a catalyst to slow the devastating effects of dental disease in South Carolina. Although preventable, dental disease is the number one chronic disease of children and the second costliest disease to treat in the United States - more costly than cancer and diabetes.

HPS focuses on preventing dental disease and teaching children to make wise choices that will positively affect their overall health and future.

A Comprehensive, Collaborative Health Team

A Winning situation for all involved

HPS is different from other programs

Since the HPS school-based program has began, the status of oral health has changed for the better in South Carolina's children. View the SC Needs assessment.
