The oral health of people in Wisconsin is a complex topic. Poor oral health is a significant contributor to childhood morbidity and can have long-term impacts on the development of chronic conditions later in life, such as diabetes and heart disease. The Wisconsin Oral Health Program (OHP) invests in oral health prevention and surveillance programs to improve the oral health status of residents statewide. The OHP’s surveillance activities provide timely and accurate data on oral disease burden, prevention and risk behaviors, access, and workforce. These data are essential to the development of public health programs that directly improve the oral health of all Wisconsinites.
