ADA weighs in on Healthy People 2030 oral health objectives

Washington — The ADA is applauding the U.S. Health and Human Service's Advisory Committee on National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives for 2030 for highlighting oral health in Healthy People 2030.

In a Jan. 17 letter to the advisory committee, the Association said it was pleased to comment on the draft framework for Healthy People 2030, an initiative that each decade develops a new set of science-based objectives to "prioritize the investment of public, private and nonprofit health resources."

For the 2030 plan, ADA President Jeffrey M. Cole and Executive Director Kathleen T. O'Loughlin praised committee experts for singling out oral health and applauded them for recognizing the role that oral health plays in overall health, access to services, and educational and community-based programs.
