2018 Texas Oral Health Conference

July 25-27, 2018
JJ Pickle Commons Learning Center

The Texas Oral Health Conference is a joint meeting sponsored by leading oral health and dental public health organizations in Texas. A partnership between The Texas Oral Health Coalition (TxOHC), The Texas Department of State Health Services Oral Health Program (DSHS-OHP), Advancing the Oral Health Movement in Texas (ATOHMIT), and the Texas Repository of Oral Health Data for Evaluation and Outcomes (ROHDEO), the Texas Oral Health Conference represents true collaboration to improve oral health in our state. Realizing the opportunity for collective impact, the sponsoring organizations pooled resources to create a unified meeting. The Texas Oral Health Conference will replace the Texas Oral Health Summit, The Texas Oral Health Metrics Summit, and the ATOHMIT convening as the new premier oral health meeting in Texas. ​
