NAC Oral Health Initiative
Native American Connections was selected by the DentaQuest Foundation to be part of the nationwide Oral Health for all 2020 Campaign; a nationwide network of national (Grasstops), regional and state (Grass Middles) and local organizations (Grassroots) working together to improve oral health. NAC is a Grassroots organization focused on the Native American community living in the metro Phoenix area while also supporting efforts to improve oral health in tribal communities across Arizona.
Native American Connections Initiative goals include:
- Promote oral health as part of a whole health lifestyle; physical, mental & spiritual health
- Raise awareness of the importance of oral health
- Support public policy that increases access to oral health care
The Oral Health 2020 Campaign has transformed into OPEN, Oral Health Progress and Equity Network.
