Oral health is health. Virginia Health Catalyst staff and partners across the commonwealth recognize that oral health is an essential part of overall health care. Our mission is to ensure all Virginians have equitable access to comprehensive health care that includes oral health.


We strive to improve overall health by integrating oral health services, education, and referrals into all aspects of health care -- enabling Virginians of all ages and abilities to achieve optimal oral and overall health. We accomplish this through advocacy, provider education and community-based change.

Join Virginia Health Catalyst

From joining a committee to advocating for oral health or making a financial gift there are a number of ways to get involved with Virginia Health Catalyst!

Who We Work With

Medical & Dental Providers

Virginia Health Catalyst helps providers integrate care in a number of ways. Through our learning collaboratives, we provide technical assistance to Virginia clinics. And to help medical providers integrate oral health into their practices, we provide trainings and resources on topics like fluoride varnish application. 


At the heart of our work is advocacy at the federal, state, and local level. Virginia Health Catalyst works with health advocates to promote policies that benefit the health of all Virginians and facilitates the community water fluoridation rapid response team to help community-based advocates across Virginia. 

Community Partners

Each community in Virginia is unique and faces different challenges and opportunities. Working through our Regional Oral Health Alliances and events around the state, Virginia Health Catalyst helps strengthen community leaders to address the challenges facing their communities in accessing oral health services.
