For more than 15 years, dental therapists have been working to improve access to oral care and increase health equity across the United States. They are currently permitted in 14 states and several Tribal nations. What have we learned about their role in the oral health industry?
Join the APHA Oral Health Section and CareQuest Institute for a robust conversation about the potential benefits and concerns of expanding dental therapy. Our expert panel — including a dental sociologist, an advocate, and representatives from organized dentistry and dental hygiene — will explore the legal, organizational, and educational frameworks for the occupation. They’ll also look at the impact on quality of care and potential improvements in access and patient outcomes.
