Oral Health Nevada Inc. champions the dental health of all Nevadans whether they are living in our largest cities or in our most rural communities. Their belief is that access to appropriate and affordable dental care should not be a privilege because of income or where in the state a person lives – dental health is something that each Nevadan should be able to choose. Their goal is for better dental public health policies that are supported by science and they serve as a hub for resources to support oral health professionals, decision makers and our residents.
