About the Coalition

The Wisconsin Oral Health Coalition (WOHC) is a dedicated group of more than 200 individuals, organizations and agencies addressing oral health access issues and working to improve oral health for all residents statewide. We work to create meaningful change to improve oral health and access to care through diverse public and private partnerships. Funding for our statewide and local oral health coalition work is funded in part by the DentaQuest Foundation and the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership.
