Oral health affects our ability to speak, smile, eat
and show emotions. It also affects self-esteem,
school performance, and attendance at work and school

Oral health is fundamental to general health, well‐being and quality of life and is a key component to comprehensive care. Dental hygienists have an important role to play in bridging the awareness gap among patients and other providers about the connection between oral health and chronic diseases. This ECHO series aims to support Colorado dental hygienists to evaluate the full range of current oral health interventions, to communicate an oral-systemic health approach to patients and community networks, and to prepare for future innovations in education and practice.
