Louisiana ranks among the lowest in the United States for dental health and #49 for fewest dentists per capita, which makes finding a dentist challenging and finding one who accepts Medicaid even harder.
As an industry leader, Benevis has been connecting kids and their families in underserved communities to high-quality dental care for 20 years.
Every child deserves access to high-quality dental care and an equal opportunity to develop good oral health habits to help them thrive and live healthier lives. Unfortunately, there are many barriers to dental healthcare, especially for children living in the nation’s most vulnerable communities.
