Oral Health Coalition : Native American Oral Health

 "Shared Responsibility" was the resounding message coming from the first-ever South Dakota Native American Oral Health Summit.   

More than 100 individuals representing six tribes, Indian Health Service, the SDDA, Delta Dental, Tribal Chairman's Health Board, State and Federal Government gathered for the South Dakota Native American Oral Health Summit in Rapid City on April 26, 2012.  Those attending the summit identified practices and resources the can be used by each Tribe to improve oral health.   We would like to thank those who had the opportunity to attend the Summit. Many have asked to view the power point presentations from this event.
