The Ontario Oral Health Alliance (OOHA) got started in January 2007 by a group of community dental coalitions who wanted to show policy makers that improving access to dental care was a goal shared by many people across Ontario.  OOHA is driven and informed by organizations and enaged individuals from around the province.


OOHA's vision is:  a
 system that allows for equitable dental care for all Ontarians

Ontario Election 2022 - Time to Fill the Gap in Dental Care

This is what the Ontario Oral Health Alliance wants the next Ontario government to do.


2021 Federal Election
