Join us for the 2017 Oral Health Florida Conference in Orlando, July 26-28, 2017: Oral Health Florida Bridges The Gap From Children To Seniors

This year, Oral Health Florida members and guests will be treated to a discussion or important oral health issues for both seniors and children.   We are all invited to the Florida Department of Health programs on Thursday morning covering a number of important public health issues including community water fluoridation.   In the afternoon, we will have presentations about senior oral health with an important presentation by Tina Montgomery about the Oral Health America Wisdom Tooth Project and the mounting effort to include on oral health benefit in Medicare.  This will be followed by a session about advocacy for oral health for seniors and then a group of short “Best Practices” presentations.  Bright and early Friday morning, we will shift our focus to children’s oral health.  Following a presentation on the sad status of children’s oral health in Florida, we will hear the DentaQuest Foundation.  We will then learn about some best practices for school health programs from Donna Behrens from the School Health Alliance, followed by an exciting presentation by Dr. Peter Milgrom from the University of Washington; his talk will focus on new technologies including use of silver diamine fluoride.  We will end the morning with a  presentation by Meg Booth from the Children’s Dental Health Project about improving our advocacy for children’s oral health. Lunch, recognitions and awards follow and then a very important business meeting about upcoming and exciting proposed changes in how Oral Health Florida operates.  We look forward to seeing you all there.
