from Dentistry Today
Preventive care provided by dentists for children before the age of 2 years enrolled in Medicaid in Alabama may lead to more long-term care, reports the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health. A study there has associated early preventive care with more frequent subsequent treatment for tooth decay, more visits, and more spending on dental care.
