mission

The Coalition's mission is to impact the oral health of Oklahoma's children and their families by facilitating collaboration, coordination and education.

There are two ways we work to accomplish our mission:

  • Our quarterly meetings and website provide Coalition members (nonprofits, agencies and individuals with an interest in children's oral health) with opportunities to coordinate their efforts and maximize their outcomes.
  • Our website provides the general public with reliable, accessible dental health information as well as resources for obtaining dental care and education.

structure

The Coalition is managed by a volunteer executive committee.
