Public Health

ADHA recognizes the unmet needs of groups such as low-income children, pregnant women, elders, and persons who are developmentally, physically, mentally or medically compromised. ADHA advocates for the inclusion of oral health content in existing programs to prevent disease, promote health, and solve health problems among these populations.

In addition, ADHA advocates for the development of evidence-based comprehensive community oral health programs and supports the use of dental hygienists in community-based programs to improve health.
