Building an Oral Health Gameplan


The best part of planning to plan is when you start to move past planning and into action! That's how dozens of Virginia Peninsula organizations are feeling as the team from Smart Beginnings Virginia Peninsula moves closer to an action plan to tackle oral health awareness, access and care in Newport News and Hampton.


We've been facilitating conversations in the region for more than a year, and have identified a small handful of real opportunities to effect change -- especially when it comes to consistent dental care for children. Early in 2017, Smart Beginnings will deliver an action plan to DentaQuest Foundation -- and then get to work with community partners to make a difference on the ground.
