Oral health is back on the map!
With support from a grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and input from a broad range of community partners, the Department of Health and the Hawai‘i Public Health Institute are taking bold steps to make oral health a priority in our state.
We are updating a statewide oral health strategic plan with solutions to address tough challenges. It will take tenacity to break through barriers and overcome obstacles, but we’re ready to rise to the challenge. Through our collaborative efforts, we envision everyone in Hawai‘i having a healthy smile that they deserve.
The strategic plan will set an exciting, new direction to improve the oral health of Hawai‘i’s adults and children and serve as a blueprint to shape oral health policy and practices for years to come. Input from everyone committed to improving the health of Hawaii’s people is critical.
