August Journal addresses barriers to dental care access

The August Journal of the California Dental Association outlines efforts to set the foundation for two major initiatives supported by CDA — the Dental Transformative Initiative and the Department of Public Health’s State Oral Health Program. Included are articles on the concepts and frameworks of creating a state oral health plan for California; approaches that three local health departments used to address oral health problems in their communities; barriers affecting children’s use of Medi-Cal dental services; and a project that focuses on improving access to and utilization of preventive oral health care services.

The Journal is an award-winning, peer-reviewed scientific publication that keeps dentists up to date about scientific advances, business management strategies and new products.
