The Trusted Voice for Oral Health Education

Working alongside our partners to create meaningful change across New York State

As one of New York State’s foremost advocates for dental health, we have spent the last 25 years championing policies and programs that drive innovation in dental education and improve access to oral health care.

Our partners are the key to our success. These dedicated and passionate learners, faculty and leadership at our member institutions are creating effective, real change in New York State’s oral health care accessibility and education.

Our Mission

To provide innovative educational opportunities and inclusive, accessible oral health care services for all New Yorkers.

Solving inequities in dental health care is our mission. We support our partners to create a better future for oral health care, from innovations in dental education to serving New Yorkers with physical, intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Our Vision

A world in which oral health care disparities are a distant memory

Across New York State, underserved communities face significant barriers to dental care, to the detriment of their overall health. We are working towards a day when access to regular, high-quality oral health care will be ubiquitous for all New Yorkers.
