Access To Care
NNOHA members eliminate barriers to care.
Often called “the silent epidemic,” the prevalence of dental disease in America affects millions of people every day. Many lack access to dental care, due to factors such as insurance status, uneven provider distribution, and inadequate awareness of the importance of oral health. Safety-net oral health programs bridge the gap by providing access to care through their innovative programs.
As the need for access to dental care increases, the demand for quality providers committed to caring for under-served patients is growing as well.
Many safety-net providers are going beyond the four walls of their clinics to provide new access points – in schools, through teledentistry, and more.
There are many partners and allies you can be working with to leverage resources and expertise, toward a shared goal of increased oral health access.
