North Dakota
Oral Health Coalition

The North Dakota Oral Health Coalition’s mission is to foster collaborative solutions to achieve oral health equity. 

North Dakota Oral Health Coalition’s purpose is to coordinate partners and organizations throughout the state of North Dakota to create a collective impact by targeting oral health disparities. This proposed work focuses long-term on increasing access to oral health, improving North Dakotans’ oral health literacy, and developing integration between all professions impacted by oral health.
