Florida Oral Health Alliance

Mission

The Alliance has also taken important steps in advocacy including hosting a day of action at the Florida Capital in 2021. 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What's Next

In 2023 and beyond, the Alliance will be focused on achieving outcomes in three areas:

  • Policy Advocacy – Passing state and local legislation that increases access to dental care for vulnerable populations (ex: A comprehensive Medicaid Adult Dental Benefit; Increasing Medicaid eligibility limits)

  • Community Outreach and Education – Recognizing the need to empower community members as they navigate the health care system, we will be focused on building systems and processes to reach more Floridians. We’ll also create intentional messaging meant to address the most critical knowledge gaps.

  •  Systems “Culture Change” – To improve the delivery of care to vulnerable populations, FOHA will be building a campaign and long-term infrastructure to share best practices with providers and other stakeholders.
