NORTHERN VIRGINIA REGIONAL ORAL HEALTH ALLIANCE

Mission Statement

The Northern Virginia Regional Oral Health Alliance works to improve the oral health of Northern Virginia residents by:

  • Cultivating engaged and informed patients and providers; and
  • Breaking down barriers to oral health care accessibility and affordability.

Goals

  • Public awareness: Increase public awareness and engagement around the issue of oral health and health equity in the NOVA region.
  • Pediatrics: Increase dental home referrals and oral health integration practices by pediatric medical providers for young children and increase follow-up care from initial dental visits for young children.
  • Older adults: Identify and address the clinical and non-clinical barriers to delivering dental care to older adults residing in community settings and in long-term care facilities; implement collaborative partnerships to improve access to care for older adults; and, increase awareness among service providers for the older adult population of available dental resources and gaps in resources.
