The Coalition's Regional Oral Health Alliances are groups of community-based partners who collaborate to improve oral health and overall health for the most vulnerable populations in their regions.
These diverse groups are open to anyone with an interest in improving oral health, including representatives from health care, human services, education, and economic development, among others.

Where we Work
The Coalition has fostered region-specific oral health alliances in three areas: Greater Richmond & Petersburg, Northern Virginia, and South Hampton Roads, as well as unique partnerships with local and regional organizations across the entire commonwealth. We are mindful of existing programs, initiatives, and coalitions that are tackling local and regional health issues. If you are interested in growing the capacity of your region to collaborate and improve oral health, either by starting an alliance in your region or embedding oral health into an existing regional coalition, we are here to help.
We measure success for each alliance in two ways:
- Locally- or regionally-specific measures and benchmarks established as part of alliance action plans
- Improvements on measures graded by the Virginia Oral Health Report Card
We would love to have you join the Regional Oral Health Alliance in your area! Contact Lauren Gray for more information on upcoming meetings.
