OPEN is has both “progress” and “equity” in its name because they are part of its core values. That includes making sure that members use a big picture view of systems that need to change, along with creating solutions that aren’t “one size fits all.” We work to open doors to things like nutritious food, dental insurance, and providers who provide culturally sensitive care. We advocate for programs and policies that give all people the keys they need to unlock these doors. Oral health is linked to overall health, so our work is ultimately about making our nation as healthy and strong as it can be.
