Campaign for Teen & Young Adult Oral Health

Making healthy choices is not easy when you are a teenager. Peer pressure and the desire to fit in can influence the decisions that impact oral health, good or bad.

Join Oral Health America (OHA) this spring and summer for our Campaign for Teen & Young Adult Oral Health, as we engage with young people to understand what they know about soda and sports drinks, HPV, nicotine products and mouth protection during athletic events.
