Advocacy Week (October 1-5, 2018) is a major advocacy effort within Oral Health America’s Fall for Smiles campaign, which focuses on the oral health of families. While the Fall for Smiles campaign provides messaging and resources that support maintaining good oral hygiene habits at home, Advocacy Week encourages people to learn and speak out about policies that impact their oral health.
Please join Oral Health America this Advocacy Week as we work to ensure that every person can attain a healthy mouth.
