Advancing Oral Health Equity!

Picture of smiling mouth

Coloradans know oral health is important, but too many struggle to access the care they need, find it unaffordable, or feel mistreated when they go to a dentist office

CCHI is working to ensure oral health gets the attention it needs and that community members can drive change for oral health equity.

We know:

  • Over 50% of Coloradans live with mouth pain or feel self-conscious because of their oral health
  • 73% say dental care is too expensive
  • 47% of Coloradans needing immediate care are waiting a month or more to get it
  • 1 in 4 Coloradans that have not sought care cite fear, anxiety, judgement, or mistreatment
  • Only 13% of Coloradans report having no barriers to getting the oral health care they need

It’s time to make oral health a priority. Here are ways to get involved:

The Colorado Option

We worked hard to pass the Colorado Option, and now we’re working to ensure communities are aware of plans and financial assistance available to them. The Colorado Option plans are the first health care plans available to every Coloradan who buys insurance on the individual marketplace (not an employer), regardless of documentation status. Read on and find toolkits, immigrant resources, webinars and more.
