HRSA Comment Period: Make the Case for Oral Health

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has proposed transitioning the oral health national performance measure (NPM) to a state performance measure (SPM). Oral health has been an NPM since 1997. If oral health is transitioned to an SPM, it will no longer be a national priority, and efforts to promote oral health care at the national, state, and local levels will suffer.

Send your comments by e-mail to or by mail to Health Resources and Services Administration, Information Collection Clearance Officer, 5600 Fishers Lane, Room 14N39, Rockville, MD 20857.
