Oral Health 2020

The Central Valley Health Policy Institute (CVHPI) and the DentaQuest Foundation Grassroots Initiative are working together, along with stakeholders in the San Joaquin Valley, to identify the barriers community members encounter in accessing oral health care and living healthy lives.

We are currently engaging experienced health-related, health equity, social justice, and community development, place-based, community-based organizations and/or networks, who work with those most impacted by the policies and systems that negatively impact health outcomes, toward the Oral Health 2020 vision of improving lifelong oral health and eradicating dental disease in children.

This strategy aligns with a strong and growing movement around health equity, health care, and health outcomes.
