Addressing Social Determinants of Health to Improve Dental Health Equity in Children
Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) have a significant impact on children, particularly in terms of oral health.
In fact, about half of all children in the U.S. do not receive regular dental care due to social, economic, and geographic obstacles. By working together with policymakers, healthcare providers, medical professionals, educators, and others like you, we can help ensure that no child is left behind when it comes to achieving good oral health.
Review this important white paper to learn how SDOH affect children’s health and well-being, and what can be done to reduce these devastating dental disparities.
