A Culture of Health

Increase funding for dental care

The current publicly funded dental care programs need to be more robust with basic, denture care and preventive dental care covered in the OW Adult program. Dental programs should pay the providers enough to at least cover expenses. Investing in properly funded dental programs with essential services covered will improve oral health, decrease barriers to dental care, and decrease health care spending on costly ER visits which don't solve the problem. Thank you.
