Future of Public Oral Health in Virginia

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing racial justice reckoning, Virginia Health Catalyst convened a taskforce of oral health stakeholders from across the commonwealth to design a roadmap to address Virginia’s fragmented and siloed health system and the ramifications of racism and inequity on health outcomes.

The Future of Public Oral Health

Members of the Future of Public Oral Health Taskforce developed recommendations to improve Virginia's public oral health systems by supporting, amplifying, and maximizing technology, integration, workforce, and data. These recommendations provide a framework to transform Virginia's public oral health system to ensure it is equitable, patient centered, and value based.

Read the recommendations here.

Stakeholders are actively implementing the recommendations through workgroups that:

  • Test and improve care delivery models,
  • Fill gaps in knowledge,
  • Analyze existing and collect new data to support patient-centered care, and
  • Push Virginia towards a more value-based care health system.
