AN INVITATION FROM
Please join us for a discussion about dental access in Ohio and to look in depth at our workforce options. Your voice is critical in creating greater access to dental care.
Getting Ohioans the dental care they need will take a multifaceted approach. Many good efforts are already underway to increase access to care, but Ohio’s safety net system—including free dental clinics which rely on volunteer dentists, federally qualified health centers, and the dental OPTIONS program— have waiting lists which can be months and sometimes years long.
Dental Access Now! has been studying oral health workforce issues for more than 5 years. We have been talking to community-based clinics, dental provider educators, hygienists, dentists, patients, people who cannot find a dentist or afford care, social workers, and other health care providers. We convened a workgroup with representatives from those groups. We have studied dental workforce models from other countries and across the United States. We have had support and technical assistance from some of the best known public health dentists and experts in Ohio and around the nation.
And, now, we have Senate Bill 330, which outlines a unique workforce modernization model to address some of the specific barriers that Ohioans face in getting the dental care they need.
