In 2019, we're advocating for a comprehensive dental benefit for all adults enrolled in Medicaid.
Oral health is health. Virginia Oral Health Coalition 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 access to affordable, 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 health. We accomplish this through advocacy, provider education and community-based change.

Who We Work With
Medical and dental providers are at the front lines of reshaping oral health care in Virginia. The Coalition serves providers through resources and educational events on integration, caring for patient populations, and more.
At the heart of our work is advocacy, creating changes at every level to improve access to comprehensive health care that includes oral health. The Coalition works with health advocates to promote policies that benefit the health of all Virginians.
Working through our Regional Oral Health Alliances and educational events around the state, the Coalition and our community partners address specific challenges facing Virginia communities in accessing oral health services.
