Medicaid and Dental Care

In June of 2008, the ADA’s Council on Access, Prevention and Interprofessional Relations (CAPIR) conducted a one-day Medicaid symposium at it’s headquarters in Chicago. The purpose of the symposium was to provide background information for attendees of the Access to Dental Care Summit, which is scheduled for March 2009.

The primary goal of the Symposium was to gain an understanding of the challenges in providing care to
Medicaid recipients, and discuss strategies to integrate Medicaid patients into private practice
settings.  Participants included representatives from each trustee district, who had at least 1,000 Medicaid or State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) patient visits in the last calendar year.
