ADA launches Health Equity Action Team as part of new initiative

The American Dental Association launched a new Health Equity Action Team to move toward eliminating disparities in oral health. 

The team will be led by the Council on Advocacy for Access and Prevention, according to an Oct. 13 news release from the ADA.

During SmileCon, an ADA event, the team provided information on the ways that dentists can get involved to help reduce gaps in dental care and oral health, including educating their patients, working with health organizations in the community and creating diverse workplaces.
