Oral Health Policy Tool Guidebook

A two-part Policy Tool was developed collaboratively by the Division of Oral Health (DOH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Children’s Dental Health Project (CDHP) to support a facilitated process for oral health stakeholders to join together to make decisions about priorities based on suggested criteria.

The Policy Tool also provides a planning checklist to move forward strategically once consensus about priorities is achieved. The Policy Tool was piloted in five CDC-funded states (2007-08), and evaluation results suggest that it is both usable and useful for stakeholders in settings that range from a policy committee meeting to an annual oral health summit.
