GDA Launches Georgia's Action for Dental Health

Mon, 24 Aug 2015

The Georgia Dental Association is pleased to announce the launch of Georgia’s Action for Dental Health. Georgia’s Action for Dental Health is a comprehensive effort developed by the GDA to improve oral health and the overall health of all Georgians. The GDA promotes and advocates for oral health because a healthy mouth is essential to a healthy body. All Georgians should have access to quality dental care with programs and services tailored to Georgia’s unique demographics – from infants to the elderly. Georgia’s Action for Dental Health will be implemented over the next several years with collaborative efforts from stakeholders seeking to achieve these goals.
