Lack of access to dental care can be a serious problem connected to adverse health outcomes. Dental caries, also known as tooth decay, is the most common chronic childhood disease and is largely preventable. Oral health is essential to the general health and well-being of individuals and society, yet significant oral health inequities persist in the United States.
Join us for a discussion on the relationship between oral health and social work and opportunities for partnership.
