A letter from the Executive Director

Happy New Year!

Since 2003, we have been leading efforts to expand Medicaid dental benefits for adults, advocating to improve access to dental providers, and teaching people how to make oral health a priority. We developed a network of over 1600 oral health supporters. We also elevated the issue of oral health at the state level, and now it is a regular topic of conversation at the State Capitol. Please help us continue to make oral health a priority in Kansas us by making a contribution.

Together, we have accomplished a great deal, but we also have a long way to go to ensure all Kansans can take care of their oral health in order to be healthy, happy, and productive. The future for Oral Health Kansas is bright, and we need your help to make it a reality. Philanthropic support for running advocacy organizations like ours is shrinking, but the need for state and local education and advocacy is greater than ever. As you plan your charitable giving in 2019, consider the reasons supporting Oral Health Kansas will make a difference for Kansans.
Your support will allow Oral Health Kansas to:
Make oral health and dental services a higher priority for legislators, members of the public, and funders.
Keep staff available to teach people why oral health is important and how to take care of themselves and their families.
Maintain the supports necessary to preserve community water fluoridation.
Continue to grow the network of people and organizations promoting oral health in every corner of the state.
