Description

Oral Health Colorado (OHCO) has been successful in harnessing the energy of its network partners to improve oral health for all Coloradans, especially our children. Oral health disparities vary dramatically by county, community and even neighborhood in Colorado, and are closely linked with economic or social disadvantage. People in groups with a history of discrimination or social exclusion because of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or geography are most likely to suffer oral health disparities. And while oral health focuses specifically on issues presenting in the mouth—including the teeth, tongue, gums, and the entire oral cavity—experts note that oral health is inextricable from physical and mental health.

At this annual meeting, OHCO will share its successes and will bring speakers to discuss how oral health is about much more than teeth. Advocates must build support for the changes needed to improve oral health access, outcomes, and equity and we’re looking forward to sharing ideas and conversations.
