Report: Integration of Oral Health and Primary Care Practice 


Lack of access to oral health care contributes to profound and enduring oral health disparities in the United States. Millions of Americans lack access to basic oral health care. In 2008, 4.6 million children – one out of every 16 children in the United States did not receive needed dental care because their families could not afford it. 

The Integration of Oral Health and Primary Care Practice initiative strives to improve access to early detection and preventive interventions by expanding oral health clinical competency of primary care clinicians, leading to improved oral health.
