Oral Care Industry Partnership

Who we are

A volunteer body of oral care professionals and employers across the supply chain focused on workforce development needs in the region.


Create a pipeline to engage and educate a highly diverse new oral care workforce drawn from underserved communities, with a special focus on increasing the number of minority dental hygienists, dental auxiliaries, and expanded function dental auxiliaries (EFDAs).


  • Promote the demand for and the development of oral health care services in target communities.
  • Recruit minorities to oral care professions.
  • Develop alternative pathways for minorities to access oral health education and employment.
