Healthy People 2030 Oral Health Objective Promotion Webinar Series: Reducing the proportion of children and adolescents with untreated tooth decay

This is the fourth in a series of webinars designed to promote the 11 Healthy People 2030 oral health objectives. 13.4 percent of U.S. children and adolescents 3 to 19 years of age have untreated dental caries, and the Healthy People 2030 target is to reduce this proportion to 10.2 percent. This webinar, hosted by the Colgate Oral Health Network in partnership with the Alliance for a Cavity Free Future (ACFF) and the American Association of Dental Boards (AADB), and moderated by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), will focus on evidence-based solutions to reducing untreated dental caries, especially in vulnerable and underserved populations.

Participants will learn:

  • Explain Healthy People 2030 Oral Health Objective OH-2
  • Describe disparities in access to dental care and untreated tooth decay by race/ethnicity, income, and geography in children and adolescents
  • Implement at least one evidence-based activity in your community to address Oral Health Objective OH-02
