Abstract Limited health literacy is associated with poorer health knowledge, worse health behaviors, and adverse clinical outcomes. In 2009, the ADA proposed a 2010-2015 strategic action plan to improve health literacy for the dental profession and other stakeholders. This article provides an overview of the National Advisory Committee on Health Literacy in Dentistry and describes the basic elements of the ADA plan.
