Oral Health Day 2020




What is Oral Health Day?

Every year NCOHC brings oral health advocates from across the state for a day of action at the North Carolina General Assembly. We hear from dynamic speakers, discuss pressing issues in oral health care, and meet with our elected officials.

This year the theme of Oral Health Day is teledentistry. See our resources below to learn more about teledentistry and how it will benefit North Carolina, and register for Oral Health Day today!

About Teledentistry

Teledentistry refers to the use of telecommunications for oral health assesment, consultation, and education. Teledentistry is an innovation that has incredible potential to increase access to quality dental assesments and diagnoses in communities that traditionally lack access, especially in rural areas without practicing dentists.
