Transforming health systems to address oral health.

The mouth is often treated as separate from the rest of the body and oral health is rarely addressed in medical settings. This needs to change.

We work to transform health systems to address oral health by:

  • Developing, testing and spreading the tools and supports needed by health providers to use a population-health, data-driven, inter-professional approach to delivering oral health care.
  • Training medical providers to address oral health through our Mouth Matters program.
  • Fostering interprofessional development.
  • Supporting community health workers to address the oral health needs of their communities.
