The mission of the IOHA is to lead collaborative efforts to bring optimal oral health to Idahoans through education, advocacy, and program development.
The vision of the IOHA is to seek optimal oral health for Idahoans.
Key IOHA Initiatives selected by the board in 2016 include a focus on oral health integration and the continuation of our Healthy Me is Cavity-Free initiative.
Their focus on oral health integration grew from their recognition of the national trend to bring oral health preventive practices and screenings into primary care settings in order to better serve a patient’s whole health. Their Idaho interest in this concept has been reinforced by their participation in the IHC and the SHIP.
In collaboration with the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, the ADHA Institute for Oral Health provides thousands of dollars each year, to advance the profession of Dental Hygiene through scholarship, research and service. These monies have been awarded to dental hygiene students for educational needs (Scholarships), to those expanding the field of dental hygiene (Research Grants) and to dental hygienists’ to provide oral health care and education to those in their communities (Community Service Grants).
