New report: Dental screening laws for children have mixed results
from Dentistry IQ
State laws that encourage school-age children to be screened for dental disease have mixed results connecting children with needed care, according to a new report released by the Children’s Dental Health Project (CDHP). Dental screening laws (DSLs) aim to improve students’ access to oral health care and address dental disease among children. Yet CDHP’s research finds that several factors limit DSLs from fulfilling these goals.
