ABOUT THE PLAN

A diverse group of oral health advocates collaborated over the course of a year to develop the 2012 Colorado Oral Health Plan.  Each advocate brought a unique perspective on the importance of oral health in Colorado.  The result of this collaboration is a plan that recognizes and builds upon the successes of the previous state oral health plan.  However, this edition includes stronger accountability for follow-up, and well-developed outcome measures and evaluation. Additionally, needed changes were made in identifying focus areas.

The Colorado Oral Health Plan is designed to be dynamic, iterative and interactive. It is primarily a web-based document that allows for timely updating or revision. The plan focuses on six critical areas and includes outcome measures that will allow for ongoing evaluation of progress toward reaching the goal of the plan:

All Coloradans have access to, and use, patient-centered comprehensive oral health care and education.
