Dental health is an important component in overall health, making it a public health issue. According to Harvard Medical School, poor dental health may even be linked to cardiovascular disease. Several government grants support dental-health initiatives, research and programs. From the state to the federal level, dental-health grants have a variety of goals, guidelines and focus areas.
