MembershipWelcome...the Texas Oral Health Coalition (TxOHC) invites you to join us in support of oral health in Texas. TxOHC is a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501 (c) (3) state level oral health coalition that was formed in November, 2004. Members work collaboratively as an active organization that advocates for improved access to oral health services in Texas. The purpose of the coalition is to promote oral health across the lifespan by advocating for optimal oral health for all Texans through statewide partnerships.
Collaborating partners share a common vision and TxOHC member’s work together to increase the public’s awareness of oral health as a vital component of total health. The coalition is comprised of various stakeholders that include: medical and dental related professionals, community agencies, faith-based organizations, insurance companies, policy developers, professional educators, public members, and state and government entities.
TxOHC has an organizational structure which includes: elected officers, bylaws, mission and vision statements, committees, partnering agencies, and a collaborative state oral health plan. The coalition also hosts an oral health summit annually. Please see "Programs" on the Home page for more information about the upcoming Oral Health Summit.
If you, or your organization, share our mission and can envision Texas as a state where every person is known to enjoy optimal oral health as part of his/her total well-being through individual and shared community responsibility where:
- Education and prevention are priorities
- Education, prevention and treatment are available, accessible, affordable, timely, and culturally appropriate
- Community solutions are shared among patients, parents, providers, employers, insurers, and government, and
- Collaboration with government, higher education, public and private sector ensures resources, supportive public policy, quality care, advocacy, and patient education.
Then we would like to invite you to apply for membership and partner with
our coalition. TxOHC is currently seeking organizations, or entities to strengthen our coalition’s membership framework. As a nonpartisan, nonprofit coalition, it is important that we are well balanced with representation from many diverse healthcare professions in the public and private sectors.
