  • Increase oral health literacy.
  • Increase dental practice efficiencies.
  • Connect and integrate oral health and overall health.
  • Increase focus on prevention and/or early intervention.

Applications needed to:

  • Originate in Colorado – Out-of-state applications will not be accepted.

  • Be impactful – Funded ideas will advance the field of oral health in a meaningful way.
