Filling the Gaps: Dental Care, Coverage and Access
The Affordable Care Act is expected to expand public and private dental coverage for children when it takes effect in 2014, but significant gaps will remain, especially for low-income adults age 21 and older. On Tuesday, June 19 at 12 noon ET, the Kaiser Family Foundation will convene a public forum to examine the gaps and disparities in dental coverage and care in the United States today; the health, social, and other consequences of these systemic deficiencies; and promising strategies for ensuring access to oral health care for all Americans.
The event will begin with a screening of a short segment of a forthcoming Frontline television documentary, produced by Frontline in collaboration with the Center for Public Integrity and introduced by producer Jill Rosenbaum, that examines oral health coverage and access issues. The forum will move quickly to a discussion with a panel of experts, including Marcia Brand, Deputy Administrator at the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration; Terry Dickinson, DDS, Director of the Virginia Dental Association and Founder of Mission of Mercy; Debony Hughes, DDS, Program Chief, Dental Health Program, Prince George's County (Md.) Health Department; and Greg Nycz, Executive Director of the Family Health Center of Marshfield, Inc., in Marshfield, Wisc. Diane Rowland, Executive Vice President of the Kaiser Family Foundation and Executive Director of the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, will chair the forum and make introductory remarks. Jackie Judd, a Vice President at the Foundation, will moderate a Q&A between the audience and the panel.
Lunch and registration begin at 11:30 a.m.
The event in the Foundation's Washington, D.C. office is open to the public.
