The Alliance is most appreciative to Colgate-Palmolive for the donation of the On-line Oral Health Resource which is in its first phase of development. We believe that this free web-based resource will provide professionals and communities with evidenced-based tools and support materials to help establish effective oral health programs to prevent and manage caries in their local communities.

About The Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future

The Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future is a worldwide group of experts who are working to stop the initiation and progression of an early form of cavities (known as caries). Their goal is to establish a Cavity-Free Future for individuals of all ages.

Overall, the group believes that global leaders, organizations and individuals– such as country and community leaders, health and dental health professionals, public policy and education communities, and the public – need to collaborate to learn more about this early form of cavities. They also believe in coordination in providing prevention and management strategies to help reduce the impact of caries.

By working together on a global, regional and local level, the Alliance challenges these stakeholders to stop caries NOW for the opportunity to have a Cavity-Free Future.

How Can I Help?

In addition to working with professionals to achieve this goal, we also hope to engage the public by providing a checklist of activities that you and your families can complete in order to help us achieve our goal of a Cavity-Free Future. Once completed, the Alliance for a Cavity-Free Future will issue an online certificate which can be printed to show off your accomplishment.
