Assuring access to affordable, high quality and culturally appropriate dental health care for all
Our mission is to unite dentists in support of evidence-based, high quality and cost-effective oral health services including disease prevention and treatment and care delivery models.
To unite dentists who support evidence-based practices in the U.S. as a means to advance the goal of comprehensive health equity with a specific interest in oral health equity for all. Examples of such practices include community water fluoridation, the use of dental sealants, the inclusion of fully funded comprehensive oral health benefits in public programs such as Medicare and Medicaid and the utilization of cost effective workforce models such as dental therapists.
