ANOHC: AMERICAN NETWORK OF ORAL HEALTH COALITIONS
The American Network of Oral Health Coalitions is a network of 43 State Oral Health Coalitions that advocate for 294 million Americans. ANOHC members are statewide oral health coalitions that promote lifelong oral health by shaping policy, promoting prevention and educating the public.
ANOHC exists to create a reliable place for state oral health coalitions to share information, ask questions, and leverage time and resources
CAMPAIGN FOR DENTAL HEALTH
The Campaign for Dental Health (CDH) was created to ensure every American has access to the most affordable and most effective way to protect teeth—community water fluoridation (CWF). The CDH is a network of local children’s and oral health advocates, health professionals, and scientists who are working together to preserve our nation’s gains in oral health by sharing facts about oral health and preventive strategies like fluoride. Children with healthy mouths do better in school and are more likely to become happy and successful adults. We want communities to make rational decisions about their health based on science, not fear.
ARIZONA PUBLIC HEALTH ASSOCIATION
As an affiliate of American Association of Public Health (APHA), we are a membership organization that works to improve the level of health and well-being for all Arizonans through advocacy, professional development and networking. Since 1928 we have been providing services to a wide range of members in the public health sector including health care professionals, state and county health employees, heath educators, community advocates, doctors, nurses, students and faculty.
THE CHILDREN'S DENTAL HEALTH PROJECT
An independent nonprofit advancing solutions so all children achieve oral health. The Children's Dental Health Project will keep working to:
- Prevent childhood tooth decay, because cavities are the result of a disease that is overwhelmingly preventable
- Promote innovative, cost-effective solutions grounded in science, and support exploration where evidence is lacking
- Engage decision-makers to address oral health disparities and ultimately improve our nation's health
More young children suffer from tooth decay than from any other chronic condition, including asthma. We can change this. Let's keep moving forward for kids.
The DentaQuest Foundation was established in 2000. Our mission is to improve the oral health of all. The Foundation collaborates with partners in communities across the United States, connecting key stakeholders, raising awareness, and supporting solutions.
We seek to achieve our mission by investing our efforts in four systems — Policy, Funding, Care and Community.
In our vision of success:
Populations have better oral health and less disease through greater access to quality care and prevention.
Providers (dental and non-dental) and Patients work together to effectively prevent and manage oral disease.
Reimbursement (public and private payers) is based on improved outcomes rather than procedures.
Private funders achieve greater system and community impact to improve oral health.
Policymakers have a clear vision of an optimal health system that includes oral health and have sound data and best practices to make policy and funding decisions.
