Dental Health is 
Public Health

Regional Convening Series

Hosted by:

  • Many Floridians are struggling to access dental care, including the over six million Floridians living in Dental Care  Professional Shortage Areas.

  • Join the Florida Oral Health Alliance for a panel discussion on oral health access in your community.

  • The panel discussions will feature local providers and stakeholders as they discuss trends in oral health, local barriers to care, and potential solutions.

  • Dental and other providers, public health professionals, community based organizations, advocates, and anyone interested in improving access to oral health is invited to participate.

  • This will be a great opportunity to learn from each other and to network with others across sectors. A light lunch and drinks will be served.
