Most of us take oral health for granted, but for thousands of individuals and families in Texas, lack of access to appropriate, quality oral health care has enormous, and sometimes tragic consequences. Children in pain caused by tooth decay cannot eat properly, cannot learn properly and will not develop properly. Adults with missing, diseased or damaged teeth often find it difficult to secure employment and be self-sufficient. They not only have physical pain, but also may suffer the emotional pain of self-consciousness, embarrassment, low self-esteem and depression.
The Texas Oral Health Coalition is the primary organization in Texas working across the state to bring together health professionals from all disciplines, policy makers, educators, industry leaders and others to advance comprehensive oral health care for all. We create partnerships both statewide and at the local level to identify and implement innovative and effective approaches to improving oral health. Your contribution is essential to our continued efforts and will make a real difference in the lives of thousands of your neighbors.
Please share in our mission to make optimal oral health a reality for all Texans by donating today. The Texas Oral Health Coalition, Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Contributions of any amount are welcomed and appreciated!
