MCH-022: Dental Access

Dental Access: The Wisconsin Medical Society (Society) recognizes the importance of good oral health to overall health and the need for improving access to dental services for children and underserved populations in our state. The Society should cooperate with the Wisconsin Dental Association and the Division of Public Health to identify ways to improve access to preventive dental services and work toward a common goal of improving the oral health of children in our state. The Board of Directors should evaluate the feasibility of having physicians in Wisconsin provide some preventive dental services to children. (HOD, 0414)
