The PA Coalition for Oral Health is the statewide advocacy organization dedicated to promoting the importance of lifelong dental health by shaping policy and educating the public so Pennsylvanians know that all mouths matter. The priority areas are intentionally broad and far-reaching, and are intended to allow members to work on a variety of topics within the broad goals, depending on what the legislative session holds. The priorities are also written to be as inclusive of our valued partners as possible. For some priorities, it is appropriate for PCOH to lead the lobbying effort. On others, PCOH takes a partnership position and works closely with another lead organization.
