Looking for the latest oral health data for Hawai‘i? Check out the Statewide Oral Health Data Tracker!
In collaboration with the Hawai‘i State Department of Health and the Hawai‘i Health Data Warehouse, the Hawai‘i Oral Health Coalition (HOHC) has identified 40 key indicators designed to monitor the burden of oral disease, engagement with the oral health care delivery system, and the status of preventive interventions, including regular dental care and community water fluoridation. The tracker presents oral health data from national and state surveillance systems and program sources like Medicaid (QUEST) and Head Start. Many indicators come with filters to more fully understand oral health status by income, race and ethnicity, education, and county.
Whether you’re compiling a professional report, researching for a school project, applying for a grant, or want to learn more about oral health in Hawai‘i, the Oral Health Data Tracker is the state’s most comprehensive oral health data bank. Be sure to check the icons next to each indicator that shows whether the data shows improvement or decline from previous years, how we measure compared to national rates, and if we’re on track to meet the goals set by Healthy People 2030. Additional resources and reports are available through the website for more in-depth information on specific topics.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or feedback about the Oral Health Tracker or suggestions for improvement. We want to hear from you! Until then, the HOHC wishes you our warmest aloha and sincerely thanks you for your continued support for Hawai‘i’s oral health.
