Racial, ethnic disparities in dental care for publicly insured children
from California HealthCare Foundation
A study published in the July issue of Health Affairs reveals that nearly 25 percent of children in California never have been to the dentist and that disparities exist across race, ethnicity and type of insurance when it comes to the length of time between dental care visits. The study, "Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Dental Care for Publicly Insured Children," supported by the California HealthCare Foundation, examined barriers to dental care in California children ages 11 years and younger using data from the 2005 California Health Interview Survey.
