The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) recently announced that four pairs of state oral health leaders — from Louisiana, Minnesota, Nevada, and Rhode Island — have been chosen to participate in the second cohort of the State Oral Health Leadership Institute. The institute offers a unique opportunity for state Medicaid dental program directors and state oral health program directors to collaborate in pursuit of shared goals. The 10-month leadership program, made possible through the DentaQuest Foundation, will provide state oral health partners with the necessary leadership skills and policy knowledge to improve oral health access and outcomes for low-income children and adults. Two-person teams from each state will create a joint transformation project to address shared oral health goals, and develop their individual leadership competencies through implementation of their project.
