As policymakers across the nation grapple with oral health care access challenges, states have implemented policies to strengthen their oral health workforces. This webinar will explore the challenges states face in providing high-quality oral health care and dive into workforce strategies and how they may be leveraged to reduce geographic and racial health disparities. Speakers will discuss state actions that support the provider infrastructure, expand the oral health workforce through innovative models, and improve access for those in areas with oral health care shortages.
