Chicago Area Oral Health Plan, 2017

 

In January 2012, the Oral Health Forum (OHF) organized and conducted its first oral health summit, in which various private and public stakeholders participated. As a result of this summit, the first Chicago Area Oral Health Plan was developed and released in September 2012. The goal of the Chicago Area Oral Health Plan 2012 was to improve the oral health status of Chicago area residents and reduce barriers that underserved populations face in achieving optimal oral health.  The refreshed 2017 framework incorporates all elements from the 2012 plan, aligning with oral health goals and objectives of important current initiatives, such as: Healthy People 2020, 2010 State Health Improvement Plan, Healthy Chicago 2.0, and the Health Resources and Services Administration’s National Oral Health Strategic Plan.
