Oregonians Matter

We care about the oral health of Oregonians.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state there are two measures that improve oral health in a community – Community water fluoridation and school-based dental sealant programs.

Oregon was recognized by the Pew Charitable Trusts (2015) as one of the top three states for school dental sealant programs.

We will keep on improving until all kids have access to basic preventive oral health measures.
