This document is the consensus statement of a broad coalition of those who seek to influence the collective impact towards just, equitable, and evidenced-based oral health promotion and disease prevention. This document presents a framework which can guide collective and individual organizational activities of the oral health network and community partners to achieve this shared vision.

The Framework to Advance Oral Health Equity in Colorado (“Framework”) outlines the key goals and strategies to achieve a shared vision to eliminate oral health inequities in Colorado. The Framework identifies key themes that emerged through the initial phases of oral health strategy planning and the community and partner engagement process, the current state of oral health in Colorado, and a set of draft goals that will be further refined to include measures of success.
