Poor oral health is linked to diabetes, adverse pregnancy outcomes, heart disease, childhood illnesses, even lost school and work hours -- yet oral health is an isolated, and often too neglected, part of health care.
The Virginia Oral Health Coalition is an alliance of hundreds of partners who believe oral health is an essential part of overall health care.
Dental providers striving to care for the whole patient, his/her children and marginalized communities.
Educators determined to enable the next generation of health care providers to practice patient-centered care that includes oral health.
Community members passionate about finding new solutions and lowering treatment costs for one of Virginia's largest chronic health care crises.
Health care providers committed to improving the overall health of their patients by integrating oral health care and referrals into their daily practice.
We are the Virginia Oral Health Coalition - an alliance of more than 150 people and organizations striving to ensure all Virginians can access affordable, comprehensive health care that includes oral health.
