Advocates propose allowing dental therapists to perform some midlevel dental care in Maine
from The Republic
Some healthcare advocates and business leaders say Maine should allow dental therapists to perform some work to improve the oral health of state residents. Proponents said at a forum in Augusta such a program would provide more access to dental care quickly and efficiently to more Mainers, especially children. Dental therapists would work under the supervision of a dentist and perform midlevel care. They say there is a shortage of dentists in the state.
