Oral Health

Oral Health Disparities continue to be a major challenge facing the United States. Newacheck et al. (Access to health care for children with special health care needs. Pediatrics, 105, 760–766, 2000) reported that dental care was the most prevalent unmet need among US children and near-poor and poor children were 3 times more likely to have an unmet need as non-poor children. Uninsured children were also 3 times more likely to have an unmet need as privately insured children. Among older adults, dental health problems are cumulative and just as prevalent as in childhood.
