Description
 
In recent years, concerns have been raised about the adequacy of dental care for low-income children. Attention to this subject became more acute due to the widely publicized case of Deamonte Driver, a 12-year-old boy who died as a result of an untreated infected tooth that led to a fatal brain infection. Deamonte had health coverage through Medicaid, a joint fed. and state program that provides health care coverage, incl. dental care, for millions of low-income children. He had extensive dental disease and his family was unable to find a dentist to treat him. This report examines the extent to which children in Medicaid experience dental disease, the extent to which they receive dental care, and how these conditions have changed over time.
