Oral Health Road Map

According to the Minnesota Oral Health Plan and the American Dental Association, the state faces major oral health disparities. Impoverished children and adults, people of color, immigrants and refugees, and many elders lack access to high-quality, affordable and culturally-competent oral care and suffer frequent, serious dental problems.

Part of the solution to addressing these challenges and advancing health equity in Minnesota is integration of Community Health Workers (CHWs) into the oral health care system.
