Advancing Oral Health Equity: A Resource Guide
To provide information about oral health equity for children, adolescents, and pregnant women, including those with special health care needs, the National Maternal and Child Oral Health Resource Center produced Advancing Oral Health Equity: A Resource Guide. This guide provides an overview of the topic and features descriptions of and links to materials on data and surveillance, policy, professional education and training, and state and local efforts. Selected materials include a Department of Health and Human Services equity action plan, an oral health policy equity tool, a community framework for addressing social determinants of health for populations with low incomes, and several resources about state and local efforts to improve oral health equity.
