Mary Otto, Phillip Thompson.
In March 2017 the New Press published Teeth: The Story of Beauty, Inequality, and the Struggle for Oral Health in America. In this widely acclaimed study of oral health care in America, Mary Otto tells the story of the history of dentistry in America from its beginnings in the 1840s, the struggle for access to care, and how the politics and business of dentistry affect one another and our society. From the book jacket, “Teeth takes readers on a disturbing journey into America’s silent epidemic of oral disease.” Mary Otto and Phillip Thompson will discuss many of the important stories of oral health care inequalities and their origins covered in the book and will ask audience members to share their insights gleaned from their own work in the oral health safety net.
