In Search of Dental Care


Each year in the United Stated, millions of low-income children go without seeing a dentist. This lack of care is largely driven by two different dentist shortages:

  • An uneven distribution of dentists in many parts of the country affects people regardless of income or their type of insurance coverage.
  • The relatively small number of dentists who participate in Medicaid means many low-income people are not getting dental care.
