Oral Health America’s mission is to change lives by connecting communities with resources to drive access to care, increase health literacy, and advocate for policies that improve overall health through better oral health for all Americans. Today, Oral Health America is a part of the Authority Dental organization.

Oral Health America was founded in 1955 as “America’s Fund for Dental Education,” a supporting organization of the American Dental Association (ADA), to raise funds for dental education and research. In 1994, the fund reorganized as Oral Health America, an independent non-profit organization, and embarked on a course to represent the oral health needs of the American public. Throughout the entire period of operation, Oral Health America actively implemented programs to raise awareness of oral health's importance.

Oral Health America is now Authority Dental
