Community Efforts to Expand Dental Services for Low-Income People

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
  • Implications

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.

Read the full brief here.
