How far out can we see? HHS Strategic Plan – 5 years HHS Oral Health Initiative – 5 years Healthy People 2020 – 10 years
Goal 2: Transform Health Care Through its Departmental Oral Health Initiative, HHS is promoting the incorporation of oral healthcare services and oral disease prevention into primary healthcare delivery sites. HHS will promote policies to integrate oral health into primary care, including prevention and improved health literacy. Improved availability of oral health services, including disease prevention, treatment, and health promotion and education should be promoted for poor and underserved populations as well as for the population at large.
Goal 2: Transform Health Care • Increase access to primary oral healthcare services and to oral disease preventive services by expanding access to: • health centers, school-based health centers, and Indian Health Service funded health programs that have comprehensive primary oral healthcare services, and • State and community-based programs that improve oral health, especially for children and pregnant women.
Goal 3: Advance Scientific Knowledge and Innovation Strengthen oral health research Use evidence-based oral health promotion and disease prevention Clarify the interrelationships between oral disease and other medical diseases
Goal 5: Strengthen the Nation’s Health and Human Service Infrastructure and Workforce • Expand the primary oral healthcare team • Promote models, where appropriate, that: • incorporate new providers, • expand scope of existing providers, and • utilize medical providers to provide evidence-based oral health preventive services

National Oral Health Surveillance PlanProgress Report NIDCR and CDC met with nationally-recognized experts Themes emerged from the meeting: Oral health data must serve a multiplicity of need — for research and for public health/practice and policy. Strengthening communications with advocates and stakeholders will help define goal-directed data-capture methods and data analyses. The granularity and frequency of oral health surveillance data collection has resource implications. Movement toward self-reported data collection and other non-invasive data collection may enhance the evenness of oral health data collected across populations. Efforts must continue to integrate oral health with systemic health, with implications for both oral health monitoring and oral disease prevention and management. A summary of the meeting and the background paper have been finalized and are under review prior to submission for publication in a major public health journal. Communications and collaborations with CDC, NIDCR and NCHS continue

Oral health educational materials have been added to materials distributed by OWH staff at all exhibits and in www.womenshealth.gov. The OWH fact sheet on oral health and the OWH pregnancy module is in the final stages of revision for publication and distribution to the public at exhibits and also via the www.womenshealth.gov website. Quick Health Data Online (QHDO), a database through www.womenshealth.gov providing state- and county-level data has updated its list of oral health data sources and subcategories to increase the number of oral health indicators for the database. An added link to QHDO provides data on women’s dental visits and dental cleaning as one of eleven indicators focusing on preventive measures women can take to improve their physical and mental health and prevent disease.
