The Oral Health Program at the Wisconsin Dept. of Health Services (DHS) describes its mission as promoting and improving oral health for the benefit of all Wisconsin citizens. The program website lists various ways the program accomplishes their mission including policy development, technical assistance, needs assessment, training, education, and through the planning, implementation, and evaluation of preventive oral health programs.
The Wisconsin Digital Archives provides access to the reports and surveys published by the Oral Health Program. Here are just a sample of what you’ll find:
