Texas Oral Health Conference

The coalition co-hosts the annual Texas Oral Health Conference. Realizing the opportunity for collective impact, TxOHC collaborates and pools resources with the Texas Health Institute and the Texas Department of State Health Services Oral Health Improvement Program to create a unified and meaningful annual conference. Continuing education was provided for 992 individuals during the 2020 conference.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Academics

The Fluoride for Smiles program applied a data-driven, evidence-based strategy for understanding existing anti-fluoridation beliefs in Texas and developed a social media campaign to garner support for community water fluoridation (CWF). Messages in English and Spanish focus on oral health and oral health equity. A series of toolkits were also created to help health care providers to discuss CWF with their patients, a toolkit for CWF advocates, and a curriculum resource guide for healthcare faculty. TxOHC created a specially designed fluoride for Texas website (https://fluorideforsmiles.org) where toolkits, self-instructional webinars, and social media messages are made available to the public free of charge.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Children and youth
