Focus On Oral Health - GIH Skip Navigation

Oral Health

Oral health is essential to overall health, but access to such services is limited. In response, many foundations and corporate giving programs are working to improve oral health care through policy and advocacy, workforce development, and delivery system support. GIH strives to increase funder awareness of this important need, particularly for vulnerable populations.

As part of their tax obligation to provide benefits to the community beyond hospital care, nonprofit hospitals can fund oral health initiatives such as community dental clinics, mobile dental services, vouchers for dental care and oral health advocacy coalitions in the communities they serve. In this issue brief, Families USA authors explain how to advocate for such initiatives.

The National Rural Oral Health Initiative is the combined effort of the National Rural Health Association and the DentaQuest Foundation to improve oral health disparities in rural America through policy, communications, education and research. As oral health issues have long impacted those living in rural communities, the activities included in this initiative are designed to enhance access to quality oral health care. NRHA is pleased to announce the release of its 2017 Compendium of Rural Oral Health Best Practices.
