Future of Public Oral Health in Virginia

Members of the Future of Public Oral Health (FPOH) Taskforce began convening in the midst of COVID-19 pandemic to address inequities and inefficiencies in the public oral health system. They 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.

Stakeholders are actively implementing the recommendations through workgroups by:

  • Testing and implementing care delivery models that focus on prevention and coordinated care
  • Providing expertise through knowledge and best practice
  • Analyzing existing and collecting new data to support patient-centered care
  • Propelling Virginia towards a value-based care health system
