About Oral Health Advocacy

Oral Health America's advocacy efforts are grounded in the idea that all Americans should have equal opportunity to achieve good oral and overall health throughout their lives.

Our legislative priorities are based on increasing access to oral health care by advocating for innovative policies and evidence-based interventions, such as school-based sealant programs, guaranteed dental benefits in CHIP and Medicare, Community Water Fluoridation, and an interprofessional dental workforce.  

Campaign for Oral Health Equity

The Campaign for Oral Health Equity seeks to raise awareness about the most pressing issues in oral health, with the end goal of creating a level playing field and improving quality of life for all.
