aryland has made great strides in improving oral health, but there is much more that needs to be done, especially to protect the oral health of our most vulnerable populations. To that end, the MDAC developed a state plan to promote the oral health of all Marylanders—children, adolescents, adults, and older adults.
Maryland Oral Health Plan: 2011–2015 offers a five-year strategic approach that addresses three areas: access to oral health care, oral disease injury and prevention, and oral health literacy and education. It is considered a living document that will be review annually and modified as needed. This plan came to life, with input from many key individuals working in state and local government agencies, academic institutions, professional dental organizations, private practice, community-based programs, the insurance industry, advocacy groups and other organizations.
The effort was funded by the DentaQuest Foundation, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene Office of Oral Health.
