NORTHERN VIRGINIA REGIONAL ORAL HEALTH ALLIANCE

Mission Statement

The Northern Virginia Regional Oral Health Alliance works to improve the oral health of Northern Virginia residents by:

  • Cultivating engaged and informed patients and providers; and
  • Breaking down barriers to oral health care accessibility and affordability.

Goals

  • Public awareness: Increase public awareness and engagement around the issue of oral health and health equity in the NOVA region.
  • Pediatrics: Increase dental home referrals and oral health integration practices by pediatric medical providers for young children and increase follow-up care from initial dental visits for young children.
  • Older adults: Identify and address the clinical and non-clinical barriers to delivering dental care to older adults residing in community settings and in long-term care facilities; implement collaborative partnerships to improve access to care for older adults; and, increase awareness among service providers for the older adult population of available dental resources and gaps in resources.

See how the Northern Virginia Regional Oral Health Alliance is working towards its goals through the 2018-2019 Work Plan.
