CDC, in an effort to facilitate the development of Oral Health Plans for each state, has identified those states that currently have State Oral Health Plans or other resources. It is hoped that sharing this information will assist other states with their plan development process. See chart below.
In the absence of a completed oral health plan, some states have requested that another plan, such as their Healthy People 2020 State Objectives, Healthy People 2020 Plan, or the State Department of Public Health Plan be posted. There are no published recommendations for state oral health plans, and the existing state plans are presented without endorsement or recommendation.
Tools to assist states to develop a state oral health plan are available at Basic Strategies for Collective Impact: Plans for State Oral Health Programs and Activities
