The U.S. healthcare system is experiencing profound change. Oral health remains on the fringes and there has been relatively little large-scale innovation in how we pay for and deliver dental care services in the last 20 years. In a novel analysis, the ADA Health Policy Institute has assessed access to dental care in every state, including for vulnerable populations. The data tell a compelling and profound story about the true barriers to improving oral health. The data also point to solutions. The oral health community needs to take a hard look in the mirror and reassess its collective approach to improving oral health in America. It is time to think and act differently.
