Working to improve the oral health of all Illinois residents.

Illinois Children’s Healthcare Foundation, Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation and Michael Reese Health Trust seek to motivate oral health practitioners, healthcare providers, policy makers, insurers and educators in Illinois to find solutions to improve the oral health of children and adults, and ensure access to preventive and treatment oral health services. That’s why they funded a comprehensive state oral health report — Oral Health in Illinois.

Building on efforts to advance oral health in Illinois, the report gives a comprehensive snapshot of the state of oral health across the lifespan of Illinoisans living in rural, suburban and urban communities. It also offers a blueprint for achieving better health moving forward for all our residents — from pregnancy and infancy through older adulthood.
