Designing Regional Strategies to Improve Virginia's C+ Grade for Oral Health

Every locality and region in Virginia has unique strengths and challenges. One-size-fits-all approaches won't raise Virginia’s mediocre grade of C+ on the 2016 Virginia Oral Health Report Card

We need stakeholders to drive change at the local and regional levels, identifying targets and designing tailored strategies across systems.  

If you would like to help us plan or participate in a regional convening in your area, please submit a Partnership Form.  Learn more about each regional workgroup, below.
