Washington Dental Access Campaign

Washington’s health care leaders are looking for ways to increase access to care for more people while making care more affordable. Boosting the dental care workforce is identified locally and nationally as a necessary part of increasing access to oral health care.

The Washington Dental Access Campaign supports a workforce solution that meets the needs of our most vulnerable populations including children, seniors, low-income adults and people living with mobility issues.
