Our Mission

Oral Health America’s mission is to change lives by connecting communities with resources to drive access to care, increase health literacy and advocate for policies that improve overall health through better oral health for all Americans, especially those most vulnerable.

Our vision is a future free of oral disease and pain.

ACCESS: OHA affords oral disease prevention and oral health promotion for Americans of all ages through funding, technical assistance, donated dental product, and by facilitating public-private partnerships.

EDUCATION: OHA’s messages to the American public center around self care, regular dental visits, tobacco avoidance and cessation, and healthy food choices, and routinely generate over 400 million audience impressions.

ADVOCACY: OHA encourages policies that create oral health equity for all 300 million Americans, including over 100 million without dental insurance and those unable to obtain dental care.
