A dentist is holding a model of teeth while a patient listens from the dental chair.

Oral health is a key indicator of overall health, wellbeing and quality of life that is often overlooked. Please join us as we hear from experts in the oral health field discuss oral health today and the Oral Health Literacy and Awareness Act of 2023. This is a bipartisan bill that, if passed, will require the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to conduct a public education campaign to increase oral health literacy and awareness, particularly among underserved communities (specifically children, pregnant women, parents, older adults, people with disabilities, and racial and ethnic minorities).
