Twelve years after issuing a landmark report that offered a framework for improving access to oral health, former Surgeon General David Satcher says profound oral health problems still exist for large portions of the population and has issued a renewed call to expand access to oral health care, especially to the millions of children expected to gain dental benefits through the Affordable Care Act in 2014.
