The Greater Richmond and Petersburg Regional Oral Health Alliance is a change agent for improving oral health among members of the Greater Richmond and Petersburg region by:
- Listening to the community’s needs;
- Advocating for better access to care;
- Educating community members; and,
- Engaging with community members, policymakers, and other stakeholders to reduce barriers to dental care.
Greater Richmond and Petersburg area community members understand the importance of oral health as a part of overall health and ultimately experience: lives free from pain and disease; an increase in self-confidence; and, the ability to function fully at work, school, and home.
- Public awareness: Increase public awareness and build community capacity to address oral health issues and social determinants of health in the Greater Richmond and Petersburg region.
- Safety net clinics: Develop a plan to assess and inform research on barriers and facilitators to safety net dental care utilization.
