Promoting innovative approaches to oral health in communities throughout Arkansas

- Supply – Provide oral health supplies to members of community.
- Educate – Educate the community about oral health.
- Prevent – Partner with a dental professional to provide preventative services for those in need in your community.
- Treat – Implement a project that connects those in need to dental treatment.
