In June of 2012, the DentaQuest Institute embarked on an initiative to develop a national strategy for quality in oral health care with the formation of the National Oral Health Quality Improvement Committee. The Committee is comprised of national leaders from dentistry, medicine, academia, business, government, and philanthropy who are tasked with developing a roadmap for an oral health care system that improves the oral health of all using the tools of quality and accountability. The Committee was formed out of the ideas presented in the report compiled by Dr. Paul Glassman, (who serves as the Committee Chair and also is a member of the DentaQuest Institute Board) and funded by the Institute and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, "Developing a Vision for Oral Health Quality Improvement in an Era of Accountability".
The Committee has developed a vision for the future of oral health and is working to translate the vision into a national quality strategy.
