The Bureau of Oral Health and Dental Services has many partners throughout the state and nationally.


One of the larger partners is the Delaware Oral Health Coalition. Its mission is similar to the Bureau’s: Lead and advocate so that Delawareans can access affordable, quality care. Prevention and early diagnosis of issues are key!

The coalition is comprised of committed individuals and organizations working together to improve Delawareans’ oral health. Coalition members collaborate to improve access to care, promote oral health to vulnerable populations, provide technical assistance on legislation, and support research and innovation.
