We are dedicated to seeking optimal oral health for Idahoans by advocating for policies and programs that help our citizens.

In 2018, we supported state and national advocacy efforts focused on the CHIP/Children’s Health Insurance Program; Close the Gap Idaho, Healthcare reform, the Children’s Dental Health Project, the Johnson Amendment, and Medicaid benefits issues.

In 2017, the IOHA spearheaded a survey that sought to collect perceptions of respondents on barriers, supportive entities, opportunities for collaboration, and issues as they relate to access to care for Idahoans. The final report was issued in December 2018 with generous support from Delta Dental of Idaho.
