|Title:||State Policy Levers for Addressing Preventive Dental Care Disparities for Rural Children: Medicaid Reimbursement to Non-Dental Clinicians for Flouride Varnish and Dental Hygiene Supervision in Primary Care Safety Net Settings|
|Abstract:||This report addresses the shortage of dental health providers in rural areas and the impact that shortage has on the availability of children’s preventive dental services, particularly Fluoride Varnish Application. It evaluates access to preventive dental services for rural children across the 50 states and potential enhancement to such access through expansion of Medicaid reimbursement for preventative services rendered by non-dental professionals and allied dental professionals (dental hygienists and dental assistants) within dental safety-net settings. The report contains appendices, figures, and tables.|
