Mendocino County partnered with VIVA to create a local oral health community improvement plan, which involves a comprehensive oral health needs assessment, including the identification of needs and assets in the community. VIVA developed an interactive Google Map that allows stakeholders to see the distribution of oral health facilities across the county at a glance and use this tool to inform policies and investments that support the oral health of the county. 

VIVA also partnered with the Mendocino County Oral Health Advisory Committee to develop an action plan to improve the oral health of the community, then crafted an evaluation plan to determine the success of the organization’s efforts.

  • Content Development and Copywriting
