Idaho’s Dentists are committed to your dental health and to making sure everyone has access to good oral health. The ISDA’s Strategic Plan is committed to advancing the oral health of all Idahoans by ensuring the dentist is the authority on dentistry in Idaho and working with other groups who advance oral health, that Idaho dentists remain active in their dental association, and that the ISDA provides quality educational opportunities to its members.
Idaho Dental Foundation
The IDF partners with dentists, community health districts, businesses, other foundations, and government leaders to improve oral health statewide through education and service. It addresses oral health needs by following a community impact model.
Idaho Oral Health Alliance
The Idaho Oral Health Alliance (IOHA) is a non-profit organization of dental professionals, public health agencies, businesses, community health providers and individuals, dedicated to better oral and overall health for all Idahoans.
IOHA is open to all who have an interest in promoting good oral health and increasing access to preventive and restorative dental care.
The Idaho Oral Health Action Plan 2015-2020 represents the collective efforts of those engaged in improving oral health in Idaho to outline and address the most pressing needs. It is a continuation of the work conducted in 2007 creating Idaho’s first Oral Health Action Plan 2010-2015 and is based on data collected from two reports, The Burden of Oral Disease in Idaho 2014 and the 2014 Idaho Oral Health Environmental Assessment and Partnership Collaboration Evaluation to guide development of the areas of priority going forward.
The purpose of the plan is to serve as a roadmap for improving the oral health of Idahoans. The plan addresses goals and strategies that have been outlined by the Idaho Oral Health Program (IOHP) in collaboration with partners and stakeholders, including the Idaho Oral Health Alliance (IOHA) and members of the public health and dental communities.
