The Center for Studying Health System Change recently published an issue brief exploring the oral health of low-income people. The brief identifies key barriers and attempts that are being made to provide dental services to these individuals.
The report includes sections on:
- State Medicaid and SCHIP Policy Affects Dental Access
- Significant Gaps in the Dental Safety Net
- Community Efforts to Expand Dental Services
The authors conclude that low-income people will continue to lack access unless there is more involvement from the dental community and state and federal policy makers.
