The Chicago Area Oral Health Plan was release on a public event at the American Dental Association on September 21st, 2012.
The Plan was the result of the combined efforts of stakeholders, representing over 60 organizations, at the first Chicago Area Oral Health Summit held in January of this year.
The three main goals of the Plan are:
- to expand and strength the current oral health infrastructure
- increase utilization of the oral health system
- promote oral health through educating the public and non-oral health professionals.
