The Arizona Oral Health Coalition is dedicated to advancing local, state, and federal policies that improve oral health for all. At the state level, we take pride in assuming a leadership role in advancing state policies that have the potential to improve oral health status, access to oral health care, and address oral health disparities in Arizona. Additionally, AZOHC supports regional OHCs’ advocacy efforts.
To this end, AZOHC strives to promote creative policy solutions to systems-level challenges, to advocate for policies and practices that will promote oral health equity, to work towards integration of oral health services within the broader health care system, and to incorporate the perspective of payers, providers, and patients in all we do. By critically examining data, rethinking payment structures and incentives, engaging providers, and mobilizing stakeholders toward action, we can create and sustain a culture of health in Arizona.
