The speakers will address key strategies, partnerships and challenges to achieve oral health equity in Colorado. Additionally, there will be a focus on innovative approaches to implementation of Colorado’s dental practice act; understanding and acting on health and workforce data; and seizing opportunities to increase interprofessional approaches to supporting disadvantaged communities’ oral health.
