The Delta Dental Institute is dedicated to advancing oral health for all Americans in partnership with Delta Dental companies and dedicated partners across the country. With expertise rooted in Delta Dental's rich history of oral health leadership, we engage in and support oral health research, community outreach, and advocacy, striving to ensure everyone understands the importance of oral health to overall health and has access to the care that they need.
In December, building on new research by the Delta Dental Institute showing that federal agencies have long deprioritized oral health, the Delta Dental Institute launched a campaign calling for the Biden Administration to install more oral health experts in positions of leadership within key federal agencies. This is critical because while oral health is intimately connected to overall health, it is a specialized area that requires expertise. To ensure the effectiveness of executive, legislative, or regulatory action related to oral health, America needs oral health experts in government.
