Cavity Free at Three
Causes of deteriorating dental health among low-income children can be attributed to a lack of access to proven preventive measures, including sealants and fluoridation; too few dentists willing to treat Medicaid-enrolled children; and in some communities simply not enough dentists to provide care. Cavity Free at Three works to address these problems by integrating prevention into well child care and expanding access to care for those most in need.
