Oral Health in America Report

TargetHIV

A comprehensive 790-page report on oral health in the U.S. was released by HHS in late 2021, outlining the status of dental care in the nation along with recommendations for change.

Oral Health in America, Advances in Challenges, is quite a read (the 28-page executive summary is probably a better starting point). Sections cover oral health in terms of:

  • Community, well-being, and the economy
  • Difference lifespan points
  • Workforce
  • Pain, mental illness, substance abuse
  • Emerging science/promising practices.

Over 400 individuals contributed to the report, including Mahyar Mofidi DMD, PhD, Director of the HRSA HIV/AIDS Bureau's Division of Community HIV/AIDS Programs.
