America’s ToothFairy Tackles Access to Care Issue in Key Publications

Due to limited or no access to oral health care, children from impoverished families and some minority groups are disproportionally affected by dental disease and experience much higher rates of tooth decay. Children who live in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSA) and states with low Medicaid reimbursement rates also have challenges accessing dental care even if they have dental coverage. In addition to supporting non-profit dental clinics serving families in need, NCOHF advocates for expanded access to care by helping raise awareness of this critical need for families across the U.S. We are grateful to two top publications for recently covering this very important issue among their readers:
