Access to Care: The Role of the State Dental Board in Public Access to Oral Health Care

AADE Member Price: $15
    Non-Member Price: $25

 

 

 

The oral health of Americans has improved dramatically over the last several decades. Segments of the population in the United States, however, do not utilize dental services or seek dental services on a limited basis.  Profound disparities in the oral health of Americans continue to exist as a result of economic, cultural, educational, and access barriers.  State dental boards that oversee licensing of dental professionals are being pressured to improve access to care by reducing licensing requirements.  The AADE Committee on Access, Regulation and Licensure responds to this issue.  It articulates a Statement of Position, and provides guiding principles for state dental boards to assist them in doing all that they can to afford equitable access to dental services in their jurisdictions without compromising the quality of care.
