Oral Health Advocacy
The PCOH has partnered with stakeholders across the state to highlight the importance of oral health for Pennsylvanians. We accomplish this by meeting with legislators and government officials, publishing informational briefs, and listening to the stories of those most affected by potential policy changes.
Medicaid Day Of advocacy
PCOH staff has partnered with Put People First! PA, Achieva, and others to prioritize the adult dental benefit in Medicaid. We met with legislative staff in Harrisburg on June 13, 2017 to help educate decision makers on the importance of access to dental care as well as the long-term societal problems that can be worsened by denying comprehensive oral health care to the entire population.
