Background and Acknowledgments

The Oral Health Toolkit is the result of a partnership between the Washington Dental Service Foundation (WDSF) and Southeast Washington Aging and Long Term Care (SE-ALTC). SE-ALTC was instrumental in the development of the toolkit, building on their previous work to increase dental resources in the community by equipping caregivers, engaging with private practice dental providers, and spearheading community coalitions. WDSF provided funding, technical support, and lead development of the toolkit.
